Fall Spectacularly

Yesterday, I was walking along my street, where the leaves on the trees have started to turn from green to red and yellow. And I saw this red leaf on the sidewalk, looking particularly spectacular. So I knelt down to take a picture. As I was kneeling on the sidewalk, the leaf spoke to me!

Do leaves speak to you? I bet if you read this blog, leaves and sidewalks and the whole of creation speaks to you . . . It certainly does to me.  We just need to make sure we’re listening. Well anyway, this leaf spoke to me, very quietly, as leaves do. In almost a whisper . . . What did it say? you might ask.

It said, “If you fall, fall spectacularly.”

So I made a quotation photo, just so I could remember what the leaf said. It’s for you too, so feel free to share . . . (I put my name on it, but really the leaf said it first!)

If You Fall

    If only the choice of how spectacularly we fell was always ours.

    Love the colours of autumn, so beautiful and rich. And yes if one falls, the most amazing action is to go down (or is it up?) spectacularly and with much gratitude. I choose to believe it’s going up rather than down. My experiences up to now indicate that the direction is up. Then again up and down much like left and right are unfairly discriminated upon. Lessons and evolution? Anyway blabbing incoherently. Have a lovely weekend Theodora and a beautiful week ahead. 😀
