Each year I live for Autumn, and then like the leaves I die with Autumn. For quite sometime in my life it’s always been a double edge sword. I love the scent of Autumn, the activities, the first cool night and the amazing colors. I really enjoy raking leaves and blowing leaves, I feel like it’s part of the experience this time of year. There’s so much excitement when Autumn approaches but when she leaves a part of me leaves each and every year, I think about the past, my life another season and the ever truth of mortality. I always reflect on that little boy playing in his grandparents yards, without a care in the world and now most of them are gone but the memories remain. Memories, it’s all the soul has, every time I slip into a bad memory, I remind myself that moves were made and things happened, had things been different I wouldn’t be who I am today and I wouldn’t have the family I have today. I couldn’t imagine a life without my family and oddly enough hearing from a good number of you all. As we say goodbye to another season, I pray we hold onto our memories and we have a few more together, all of us and the ones we love. Thank you guys for following along the way you do! I might not have thousands of followers but I have the best followers!
Early Saturday morning I had no idea we would be greeted by a frost covered mountain, it actually looked as if it was snow covered. I thought it would be awesome watching the sun rise via the mountain but the frost was an unexpected treat. By the time we were done, I think our hats looked like the mountain!!!
This morning I decided to wing it and grab a sunrise at Hogpen Gap. I was alone on the overlook for quite sometime. Once my hands thawed out I decided to go for a flight, this is near the Dodd’s Creek area. Hope you enjoy!
