As I sit in my studio typing, I hear a mixture of sounds. My daughter's music plays in the room beside me while the crispy sounds of leaves rustle in the wind outside my window.

Summer turned into autumn today. Just like that, in what seemed like a blink of an eye, the temperature cooled down and leaves began to hurl themselves downward like kamikazi pilots. The leaves here are not the fiery shades of fall, yet. But the lushness of the greens are losing out bit by bit to the yellows, which will soon turn into the oranges and the reds of the season.

I've been thinking a lot lately. Maybe too much or maybe not enough. But my thoughts keep turning towards life and what we make of it. For some (me included), we spend our days working and doing and sleeping just to get up and do it all over again. Others somehow know how to balance their time better, so they can enjoy the moments so much more.

That's what I want to do. Balance my time and enjoy the moments more. That's the plan anyway. One day. Soon.

Love your description of leaves hurling downwards like kamikazi pilots Roban....very visual.
Isn't it fabulous watching the leaves change colour, that is one of the things I love about autumn.

Regarding balancing your time one day soon, well I believe one day soon is here now and you are exactly where you are supposed to enjoy the journey my friend without regrets.

Namaste and hugs

Ah, me, too. Balance sounds so easy but it is another ting to truly allow your mind to rest, to enjoy.

Haven't commented much lately...but been reding and enjoying your photos.

It's always a tricky thing to find balance...wish I was better at it myself. I did give up Instagram..that was sucking too much time. Funny how unassuming it was...but now I find I have quite a bit more free time!
