how I almost missed Fall
So, let me set the scene...
Girl sitting alone in a peaceful albeit messy room...working away to the sounds of Nina Simone and Nicki Minaj her only view that of the backyard and her next door neighbor's dogs.
She suddenly looks out the window and up a bit and notices that the trees are changing color.
cue her inner voice...
HELLOOOOO! You are totally missing Fall. It's happening all around you and you're MISSING it. Throw on a sweater, open your eyes. take deep breaths and delight in your surroundings for goodness sake.
Incidentally, the inner voice has a British accent à la Judi Dench or the Queen of England...very posh and no nonsense.
Girl...gets up, quite shaken by the sound of her British inner voice and gets moving. She drives through the city and through her favorite neighborhoods...taking care to complete a few tasks while out...it's still a workday you know. She snaps pictures, pictures, pictures...drinks hot tea, walks about taking care to breathe deeply, looks out at the ships sailing by and thinks to herself...
I'm not missing it, I'm living it. Thank you self for the not so gentle reminder that time waits for no man....or woman.
