“Everyone must take the time to sit and watch the leaves turn.”(Elizabeth Lawrence)
Perhaps the most rewarding part of our latest road trip for me has been the opportunity to slow down from life’s challenges and simply embrace the subtle nuances of autumn’s seasonal glories. In this regard, it certainly helped that I took some time at the end of our vacation to re- witness some nostalgic October memories of childhood play in my former hometown of Cuyahoga Fall, Ohio today. For I possessed a strong desire to curiously frolick again amid a colorfully canopied ambience of dying leaves in the heavily forested lands along the Cuyahoga River Valley then. Somewhat sadly, I must soon return again to my home of unchanging subtropical greenery in South Florida. So understand how the following picture show from this Northeast Ohio visit affects my heart and mind with autumn filled exuberance today.
