“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the country slowly changes from summer cottons into its winter wools.”
~ Henry Beston

It must have something to do with the middle of October.

Early autumn outdid itself with sunny days and mild, breezy nights. Then October reached its halfway point, and the skies turned dark, the clouds gathered in layers of grays.  Now the strong winds gust and swirl and the leaves either hang on tightly, or they whip off the branches and take flight before darting to the earth.

The first weeks of autumn were truly autumn.

But the last weeks of October have a wintry feel, and signal the approaching long chill.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.
