Embracing the new when seasons change
Most of the time, we think of Autumn as the season that represents the end of summer. The leaves slowly die and fall to the ground. Grass that was once green, caressing the bottoms of our feet, dries and brown. The snow comes and blankets everything with it's white coat of magical wonder. Autumn - it's also the beginning of new life. It's a time of year where we learn to let go of the past and begin to focus on the future; a new year. How much more joy would we find life if we approached Autumn as a time to renew our hearts, letting go of the old and embracing change?
Autumn excites me! Life slows down and with it, a unique opportunity to embrace something new in the palm of our hands.
With that said, enjoy day 1 of my Inktober2015 contribution. If you've not heard of this, individuals are challenged to sketch something in pen every day for the month of October. I'm looking forward to all of the new illustrations that will come to life from this.
