This morning when I woke up and looked through our window the garden and fields were covered with a veil of mist and the sun was rising. The promise of a lovely autumn day!
My husband and I are doing our annual fasting/lemon juice cure and today is already our ninth day. So one to go before we can slowly start to eat again. This cure sets me still, confronts me with myself and my shortcomings, made me rethink about all the luxury and food we daily have and take for granted. The best remedy for me against feeling hungry, longing for food and having cold is moving and being outside. As the day so beautifully started I made an early morning walk to soak up the beauty of autumn as much as possible.
I know this is again a nature related blogpost and I didn’t intend to write it. But when being surrounded by all this astonishing beauty I can’t resist sharing it with you, so I hope you don’t mind.
Walking on a carpet of leaves in the woods and along the fields, inhaling the fresh cold air filled with heavy earthly fragrances. Hearing the dew drops falling on a roof of leaves, the singing of the birds and the silence in between.
The golden morning light makes everything come alive and the leaves looks like whirling golden treasures.
If one looks carefully there are more treasures to be found like these mushrooms. I don’t know much about them so I can’t say it they can be foraged to eat. But I’m just happy to look at them!
How wonderful it is to be surrounded by so much beauty! We live on an amazingly planet and still we are continuing to destroy it. It’s so painful to consider in what condition the planet will be when our children are grown up. I really hope we take care of the earth together and let them inherit the beauty of it.
I can’t agree more with John Muir as he once wrote “in every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.” How true, walking on this autumn morning makes me feel uttermost alive, incredibly happy, blessed and warmed up by the sun!
May your days be filled with the beauty of autumn and hopefully you’ll have the time to walk in the most beautiful season.
Thank you for reading again a autumn and nature blogpost! I wave you goodbye with this sun kissed golden oak leaf!
