We are less than two weeks to Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season. It's a time for family and friends and being thankful for all the blessings in our lives.
I love November. The main reason is that I LOVE Thanksgiving. The days get shorter and the weather is changeable: the days are warm, the nights are cold and the wind blows away the end of the leaves. My favorite time of day is twilight as dusk become night and there is a little glow left from the sun. The sky is so beautiful.
If I happen to look through the leafless trees during twilight and see that beautiful sky, I am always transported back to my childhood. It's a somewhat silly memory but I love it. It's a day when I could walk home from school (I normally took the bus) and go to the local library. On this day, I sat on the floor between the shelves of the library, reading Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators. (I've always loved Hitch) When it was time to walk home, I walked along the sidewalk avoiding the overgrown bushes, kicking the last of the leaves and feeling pretty damn independent. It was a 15 minute, uneventful walk, but I can still feel the cool air and smell the leaves. It makes me smile.
What memories will you create this month? Let's create great memories with our friends and families and spread the love.
Wishing you peace, love and sparks of inspiration, Deb
