Reflecting on Abundant Beauty

It has been a week of gray skies, and gray emotions. Looking back and reflecting on these photos from October, the bright blue sky, reds, golds, greens and browns lifts my spirits. I'm so grateful to live in a place abundant in beauty.

  34. Gray skies do bring on gray emotions, but even those can be appreciated as a quiet lull between more intense ones. Your reflections, in photo and narrative are beautiful. Your fall colors bring me joy, Laura, as we don't have them here in the tropics.
