Friday Photo: Free Falling

Sometimes as I’m moving around in my day, an image gets stuck in my head that I can’t shake. Sometimes it conjures up a memory, a feeling, or provides an impulse to do something. Often, though, I just see something that I want to capture in my mind for no particular reason-it just speaks to me. I’d like to offer these images up for ‘thought contributions’-as a way to generate a community of ideas together.

This week’s Friday photo is all about the fall.  Some of us tiptoe out of summer, hoping to just hang on for one last barbeque, one last night on the patio.  Others jump into it head first, eager to reap the harvest of a summer of hard work and deliberate planning.

Either way, we have hit the equinox.  Day and night, perfectly divided, balanced, for a fragile moment in time before we slowly slide toward the winter solstice.

Are you ready?  Can you sit back and reap the harvest of what you’ve created for your life this year?  Or are you free falling, not knowing what you’re jumping into?

  1. Love the pictures! I just love fall – the leaves, the cool temperatures, pumpkins, apple cinnamon candles…all those fall things. But I have to say I am tiptoeing out of summer this year, I don’t want it to end.

  2. Great photos and topic! I feel like I’m definitely falling into fall. This year is going to hold many changes for me and I don’t know how it’s all going to pan out. But for right now, I’m just going to enjoy all that my favorite season has to offer. The air feels wonderful!

  3. Hi MA~ so glad that you’re ready to embrace the changes that are to come! You go, girl!
    Hi Elisa~ thanks for the comment! My uncle is a pro photographer, and my kids are usual subjects~
    Hi Inner Chick~ you’re welcome…hope winter doesn’t come too early for you!
    Hi LBD~ I totally agree! Just right!

  4. Fall has brought to me the realization that in the heat of summer, I’d let go of some important parts of my life: walking, Tai Chi Chih, playing on the keyboard, and my morning pages.

    So I’m beginning a new routine that will incorporate those aspects of living that bring me joy.
