Changes: In our lives

Fall Colors

Fall Colors

Nature goes through the seasons of changes. In early autumn, in response to the shortening days and declining intensity of sunlight, leaves begin the processes leading up to their fall. The veins that carry fluids into and out of the leaf gradually close off as a layer of cells forms at the base of each leaf. These clogged veins trap sugars in the leaf and promote production of anthocyanins. Once this separation layer is complete and the connecting tissues are sealed off, the leaf is ready to fall. The end of one season.

We to, go through changes every day of our lives. I am also going through changes in my life. I am getting another roommate as my other roommates have new base assignments. There is the chance I may also move in the next few months.

As the leaves change colors and fall from their branches during the autumn season it reminds me of the changes in my life. I look forward to both the fall colors and changes that will transpire in my life. How about you?

  1. I love fall, but change can be good and bad. Since I retired I made many changes in my life. But also as I age I hate change and love a simple routine.

  2. I hope you get to move somewhere closer to home, or somewhere you really want to be.

    Change is imminent. Growth is optional.

    Hope you are well.
