On Monday morning I awoke and there was snow in the mountains. It wasn’t a major storm, more of a dusting, but Mother Nature’s evidence was clearly there for me to see. Winter is coming. Change was plainly evident, dramatic and overnight.
Contrast that to the past 5 weeks when the leaves were changing. First a few species turned bright yellow, then all the green shades started to give way to fall’s natural progression. Today there are few greens but plentiful shades of yellow, brown and red. Change was subtle, barely noticeable from day to day.
The cycle of the seasons is analogous to life. Change is constant. But some change is dramatic and obvious while other change is subtle and unnoticeable unless you look for it.
Do you pay attention to the subtle changes of living, or do you only take notice of the dramatic?
