My Collection of Autumn Discoveries – From My Diary

As I was walking through the forest this week looking down on my yellow boots and wearing my yellow coat, I wondered what I looked like surrounded by all these autumn colors. And it occurred to me that I could not see it. (Unless someone else would photograph me.) And I realized that in the woods you’ll never find a reflection of yourself. There are no windows, no mirrors. The only thing I could find of my own presence, was my shadow.

And I thought about how beautiful that is. I felt so peaceful and I lost sight of all the things I normally think about and I was just overwhelmed by the beauty and sounds around me. My self felt less present. My self did not matter much at that moment. I was reduced to a shadow surrounded by the magnificent beauty of nature playing with sunlight.

Before I went into the forest I asked God to show me new things. To open my eyes to things I haven’t seen before. And though I could hardly believe there would be, it turned out there was.

This is my collection of discoveries that day. Things I hadn’t noticed before. Things that represent to me the fullness of life. Its surprises, its darkness and its wonderful light.
