Mother Nature has begun to put on a spectacular show of her true Autumn colors here on Long Island the past few weeks. This visit to Mill Pond was breathtaking and rejuvenating for my soul. It has been many years since I have experienced Autumn on the East Coast in New York State. I grew up in Buffalo and fondly remember scrumptious autumn colors there, but it has been almost 5 decades since I lived there. My GPS encouraged me to move to the West Coast in 1977 after a massive blizzard. I lived in Southern California for almost 3 decades, never looking back except for annual family visits to Buffalo, and on Long Island. I also lived in Portland, Oregon for almost 8 years and enjoyed beautiful autumn colors especially at the gorgeous Japanese Gardens.
Now it has been five months since I have made New York my temporary home, ever since having to leave my home in Sedona, AZ this past May. It has been quite the adaptation to say the least! Next week is daylight savings time, not something I’ve been used to for almost 8 years living in Arizona! Hopefully my new full spectrum lamp will help add a daylight effect for the dark days of winter coming! I have no idea where my next adventure will take me, I await the Universe to reveal all the details! In the meantime, I am grateful to experience this glorious nature here on Long Island.
