Ruth Bernard a renowned photographer
was asked what her recipe was
for a long happy life.
One of her suggestions was to
“fall madly in love with the world!!”
Listen to her words…By taking a moment
to notice and appreciate
all its little peculiarities and idiosyncrasies–
the way the clouds flow by,
the play of light on dark green pine needles,
the kiss of the wind on your skin.
(Ryan, 2000, p. 171)
I believe this is why this time of year is called “Fall.”
It is such a calming, beautiful time to stop, really notice and fall madly in love with the world!
Slow down this November and notice the blessings that are yours.
The earth is a beautiful place to live.
