are you fading away, magic?
i am almost convinced that fall is my favourite time of the year. now it seems to be fading away. i will embrace winter. i want to enjoy all seasons. they each have their own beauty.
what is more wonderful than taking a walk with family after thanksgiving dinner together? not much in my mind, except photographing the memory.
leaves coloured brightly are almost gone, even the ones that have fallen. they have been blown by the cool wind of the north. most of the ripen berries have been foraged by the birds. the ones left are jewel toned. simply beautiful.
on this brisk november day, the sun is shining and bidding us ado. autumn is coming to the end and winter is swiftly entering our days. will there be snow, i hope so.
i will embrace winter and it's charms. goodbye november.
"We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee." – Marian Wright Edelman
"this life is changing me...a slower pace...a longer look...a simpler taste for things of nature."
I am a happily married woman of 27 years. I lived in Florida for 40 years and moved to Tn in 2000. We lived in the city of Brentwood for 6 years and move to Leiper's Fork in May of 2007. We have been in the country for about six years now on a 7.24 acre farm. We call it Dash Home Farm. Da-for Dave and Sh-for Sharon. We live in a victorian farmhouse made to look old(it acts old). We love the community of Leiper's Fork and the quaintness of the town (no lights).

" The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. "
"whatever we are waiting for -- peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance -- it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart."
