huddled and still

And the dead leaves lie huddled and still,
No longer blown hither and thither
~ Robert Frost

the next journey

As the leaves, change and fall from the tree’s with such grace and gentleness, they’re reminding us to be gentle with ourselves as this chapter ends and the next journey begins in our lives. ~ Annalee Hopkins

I went to the woods

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
~ Henry David Thoreau, 1854
