October, already!

When I come to think of the fact that it's October, that 2010 is almost coming to an end, I am suddenly in awe...



Because when I think of it, when I look back and review the year- I realize that it has been such a festive year. 2010 has been good to me so far. My life as I know it has ended, but with endings, come new beginnings.
New beginnings that are so full of possibility, and choice, and light, and just all things positive and optimistic. Beginnings are so fresh. And it is that thought, that very thought, that makes me go through the endings-the goodbyes-with an accepting heart.
Oh, how I want a real Autumn, one when leaves fall off their trees- with smiles on their faces- because they are going to a better place, a place full of joy and glee and echoes of laughter. The sounds of dry leaves under the feet of children and couples and best friends, warming their hearts and liberating their souls. But our Autumn is still such a beautiful one- because I can still go to the beach and I am so looking forward to it. Red Sea, I miss you!

yes, I had you in mind as I wrote this.

It's a full on autumn over her now and I'm really enjoying it, the cosy nights in, the fireplace is lit, I love it.
I also can't believe it's almost the end of the year, this year has gone by so fast, but so many good things have happened so I'm happy and content :)

One of the reasons I love my country is the season variety.Today it really felt like October.I was able to just crawl in my armchair with a cup of hot milk and listen to haunting music and just plan the days ahead of me.I can wave goodbye to the leaves and that just makes me so happy.I do hope you will enjoy this kind of autumn too.It is indeed something words can not describe.
Have a happy October!

2010 was wonderful until illness struck! Haha just kidding. 2010 has been fabulous, and things have been changing a lot for me too, but a lot of these endings will bring beautiful beginnings like you said. Have I ever told you how much I love reading your blog? And by the way, thank you for your sweet comments! If I am ever to run into you in real life I want to give you a hug for all the many times you've helped make my day :)
