Nothing Gold Can Stay

I took my camera along on my evening walk yesterday because I wanted to capture the beauty of the park before autumn comes to an end and I am faced with months of gray, barren, and muddy footpaths.

Nature did not disappoint; the light was mellow, the winds calm, and, the colors were magnificent. I took my time, truly focusing on the trail and everything around it, which, is something that I have found myself doing a lot, lately. I've seen wildlife in the park that I hadn't taken the time to notice in years past, when I was simply determined to get through my walk as quickly as possible-things to get back to, and all- and, I have explored lesser-used trails that I didn't know existed in the park; all of which have made the experience even more enjoyable.

Next Sunday, we will turn the clocks back and I will lose an hour each evening. That means that I'll lose the daylight in the park and will be forced to walk in the gym, on a treadmill, most days of the week. When I am able to walk in the park, on days that weather, and time,  permit, it will look far less inviting.

I'm going to miss this, but, I'm really glad I didn't miss it.

You know what I mean.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

-Robert Frost
