The fall of the leaf

Maybe autumn ‘flu slows me down for a good reason? I’ve had time today to stop and stare. Time for books, hot lemon and honey, fallen leaves, and gazing at the sky. I remember times when I’d apologise for slowing down. Nowadays I apologise (to myself as much as anyone) for running too fast. I welcome time to look at what’s here and now in the world and to wonder why I am in it. And it’s the wondering itself – rather than any answers – that’s the important thing. The contemplation draws me towards dawn.
