The weather here yesterday was awful. The wind blew in strong gusts. The rain drummed against the windows, and we even had some snow showers. Areas further north had some accumulating snow. October is much too early for snow here. I haven't even dug up the dahlia bulbs to be stored until spring. There is a lesson in nature's unexpected turns. That scene I drove by and said I'd capture tomorrow is not the same. The rich colors are faded yellow and brown. The beauty of some moments must be captured and felt as they present themselves. Their ethereal quality makes them impossible to preserve forever except in our minds or hearts. Store up moments of beauty, really see and feel them. They change by tomorrow.
