free fall up and away


deciding everything is falling into place perfectly,as long as you don’t get too picky about what you mean by place. Or perfectly.

No doubt about it, a new season has come a knocking. The perfect pause between sun showers and snowfall.  A harvest moon spilling drunken moonshine from above . Great piles of orangey burnished tree fall for kicking and underfoot crunching. Cosy wool blankets and outdoor bonfires licking away at the cold air. Mugs of creamy hot  cocoa and crisp tart red apples plucked fresh.  A new season, a fresh start.


……..took me a long time to realize. Things fall. Its gravity. And its ok.

Fall also grabs me by the hand and heart and tugs me along a different  path other than the road marked “Obvious”.It reminds me that life is fragile and ever changing. It twists  my thoughts to the left and down to the crossroads of ‘Founder’ and ‘Revival’. I think of the future and the past as I stand oh~ so~ very~ still there. It reminds me in a loud inside~ my~ head voice to grab this day and swing it around over my head by its balls. What the heck are you waiting for?


….either the well was very deep or she fell very slowly, for she had plenty of time as she went down to look about her and wonder what was going to happen next.
~ Alice in Wonderland

My mind goes to wander and wonder about the next moments uncertainty.  The fragility. The frailty. How sweet and precious breath is. The lesson to be learned.


….and they fell like they were falling in love with the ground.

I also linger on the cornerstones of  Heart and Love. Gratefulness and Thankful ‘ness’. The simple things that are our luxuries. The material luxuries that are our gotta have greediness. The things that matter the most and the ones that really don’t matter at all.


In memory of a dear friend Kimberley Anne Hahn. You lived your short dash  as well as one could. You will be greatly missed. heart,heart.
