Finish the Sentence Friday - Each fall I. . .

This is my blog hop post being linked to Kristi's Finish the Sentence Friday - Each fall I . . .


Each fall, the prelude to the winter of our lives, may pass quickly or be stuck in slow motion, like the last leaf that hangs on the branch of a tree, fluttering in the fall winds and rains, perhaps experiencing moments of liminality while waiting for the winter storm to arrive and set it free.

  1. What a simple, elegant metaphor. Made me think about whether or not I'm in slow motion, myself, in a moment of liminality. Sometimes, the realization that it's all passing by so quickly puts me in sort of a paralysis. So many choices. So little time. Panic. Indecision. Yikes. I need to take a breath and focus on the beauty of fluttering leaf as you did here.
