Once upon a time
I held onto a dream
Of second chances
Waiting through the months of struggle
The greys suddenly embraced the light
Colors of the changing season lured my eyes
The body felt lighter
Gratitude filled my soul
Now I can whistle a tune
Sing to the rhythm of autumn
Share my blessings

These photos were taken off my balcony early October. One day I’ll be able to touch a leaf personally and smell nature up close.
Now only the yellows are entrancing the eye. Soon winter will wrap its cold finger around the landscape.
Quality of life has improved and my step is lighter.
I am strangely happy.
