I think i am writing this post because I want to use the word "autumnal" in a blog post title.
what an absolutely awesome word.
autumn is my favorite time of the year. my kids and I all have autumn birthdays. at this time of year my heart swells for all things that i love: sweaters, golden sunshine, deeper shades of every color, crisp mornings. socks, birthday cakes and soup.
the season spires many of us to prepare for the upcoming holidays.
holidays are different for me these days. my nest is empty, my children's busy lives and distance keep us apart, my move west adds to the distance. holiday feel less full somehow. in many ways we've all stepped back from things obligatory. the forced march and commercial hoopla seems rather unnecessary in the scheme of things.
that does not change the gratitude i feel pour out of me.
I feel like my photographs might offer a visual for gratitude greetings, especially if you want to do something a little different and send something autumnal.
( can i use autumnal in a sentence like that ? )
oh what the heck. i just did.
tell me what you think?
i have a zillion fall images.
would one of them be something you'd like for your autumnal gratitude greeting?
Let's figure out a way to make that happen.
Photography = a never ending opportunity to capture visual celebrations.
