Pretty soon my part of the world will look like this again.. my once favorite emerald abyss will turn into a dark brown abyss.. but that’s only by eye sight...my heart knows the truth.. it’s the strangest thing bc all year round I come to this special place.. even in the colder months.. and yet in these bare times I can feel the most life here. It’s like I can hear the trees sleeping and breathing awaiting the warmer months.. and when the last frost comes and goes I can hear the leaves rustling through the tree branches with excitement for their new journey ahead...I can hear the spirals of ferns getting ready to unravel from the muddy ground. The earth is resting during this time.. she’s preparing to bear new life. And I can feel her, my heart can hear her song... and I always sing along. I sit and I wait patiently on my favorite tree for her arrival.. (which is still attached by her roots.. she fell but she didn’t give up).. I sit and I look to the heavens and all around bc heaven is here in this place. This is my safe haven.. she is my refuge.. my sanctuary.. I am here, alive and breathing and well and I do it for her.. she’s my purpose.. Mother Nature.. to live delicately and in harmony with her.. and with all of the life that inhabits her. Every other part of this life goes against my soul... but it is her, Mother Nature she is forever calling me home.. I never hesitate.. I listen.. I go.. she needs me to protect her.. to write about her, to share her beauty.. and I...I need her more than anything. When life doesn’t make sense to me.. she does.. she clarifies it all for me.. and she’s more alive than anyone I know.. even during these times of deep rest she is still so present.. and in this picture it may seem like I’m alone.. but I’m more alone when I’m surrounded by most people.. here I am in the company of tree spirits.. of angels.. of life.. of love.. of magic.. of deep serenity and bliss.💙🍁🍂🍃✨

Fall is right around the corner and I simply can't wait! Florida is (understandably) not known for it's autumn colors, but we do have, I think, one of the most beautiful trees during the fall season - the cypress tree. Especially when you see their magnificent colors in contrast with deep blue water of one of Florida's springs.
