Wednesday Wisdom - Second Spring

Autumn is a second spring

when every leaf is a flower.

- Albert Camus (1913 - 1960)

I adore this quote, and the idea that spring isn't the only time of year that brings the beauty of new beginnings; for some reason that's exactly the kind of message I need to hear at the moment.

In an attempt to break my low spirits yesterday, I took a little time out and walked around my neighbourhood, and it was so lovely to see that Autumn is already in full force. The streets are lined by beautiful shades of green, yellow and orange, and I suspect flame reds aren't too far away either. This really is a magical time of year, and it was so refreshing to be able to take a moment to step back and soak it all in.

Deep breaths, one step at a time.
