This weekend was another gift from Mother Nature. It was sunny, super warm (50°F!), and not windy. Shyla and I went for long wandering mountain bike rides.
We jumped out of bed early enough for a sunrise ride on one day, and Shyla was convinced that something fascinating was in the air. She maintained her self-control despite the scents!
I'm the kind of person who becomes even more determined to find my nirvana out in the mountains during the rougher times. So, I spend lots of time outside, soaking up the beauty, basking in the sunshine, and delighting in watching my dogs gallop around happily.
For now, autumn is barely hanging on just like this leaf. Soon, the leaf will fall, and snow will cover our world, just like every year since well before my time on this Earth.
