Shades of Gray from Grayson Co, TX #838 – Change, Why is It so Hard?

14-09-20water_5608 copy

We have yet to have any really cold or fall like weather, yet the leaves seem to know it is time for change.

I can say it. I can feel it. I can listen to Sam Cooke tell me that “A change goin’ to come”. But, why is it so hard. I sometimes wish I could adapt to my surroundings and change like the leaves.

Yet despite the want and the know, I cling to what I am. I most often feel that I don’t quite fit in. Not from the lack of trying. I feel like a river that has been dammed.

“You don’t have to fear change. What you need to fear is things remaining the same. When that happens, life has stopped.” Melody Beattie

  1. The leaves are gorgeous Jim. We don’t get much of a tree display here in California unless people have planted those trees. I do love fall though and we have one even though most people think we don’t. The only thing I don’t like about it is that the commercialization of Christmas is right around the corner.

    1. LM…….in TX the summer also just quickly fades to winter. Generally fall is like maybe a two week period of time. Then we move into the selling of Christmas, generally without too much of Christ….loved your road photo, made me want to go drive, but am going for a walk with the dogs instead….en theos…j
