|Cascade - Image c 2010 Lynda Lehmann Painting and Photography|
Autumn leaves ready to fall create a cascade of color, suspended and flapping in the wind like a curtain.
Natural beauty is a transient state, peaking in its majesty for a short time before changing form and entering a new phase of life cycle that may, perhaps, be equally captivating.
Because beauty is fleeting, like life itself, it becomes all the more precious and poignant. Life is both precious and poignant, and so we must be thankful for our short domain on Earth.
To proceed without being mindful of the wonders in life and our individual blessings as well, is to be out of touch and perhaps even arrogant. I think of friends whose lives have been taken too early, and I know that I must rejoice and be grateful for the gift of every day.
