Beauty in change

I took a walk this morning, in the lovely gentle rain… watching the colourful leaves flutter to the ground.

Each tree is changing, going through its life cycle of growth and change… into its time of rest and renewal… preparing for regrowth and new energy in the Spring.

As each tree experiences its transformation, it celebrates with riotous colour, changing from calm and restful greens to brilliant golds, reds and purples until the branches are once again bare… Just as we too can celebrate our own transformations.

Ironically, as I was basking in the beauty around me and snapping pictures, a neighbour walking her dog stopped beside me and said, “I hate this time of year. All those falling leaves are just death to me!”

I guess it’s all in the perspective!

What did the plant spirits teach me today? That change can be beautiful, as we go through the threshold of transformation.

How do you celebrate transformation?
