Yesterday was a beautiful example of what makes Indian Summer precious.  Balmy; about 20 degrees celsius, sunny and cloudless.  A perfect day to be outside doing things which you love.  We took the dog for a walk through fields of milkweed gone to seed.  We go for that walk almost every day,  but the idea of impending winter when those fields will be hidden under a white blanket heightened my enjoyment of the beauty of the silky white fluff bursting from the seedpods, a harbinger of snowflakes to come.

After that, I went to the farm to see my apple loving pal, Chester; and audit a natural horsemanship clinic, with Neil McLeod, from Manitoba. Watching him make contact with horses in a way which made sense to THEM was inspiring.

The name of this post comes from another blog.  Making Time to Live is an initiative of a pair of friends living in Spain, the point of which is to remind people of how great it is to get out into the world and use their imagination and creative powers to create a richer life for themselves, and by extension, everyone who reads their posts and/or hangs out with them. If you read my blurb in the header on this page, you'll see that's close to the reason I started my blog.  So, I'm joining them!  Maybe you'd like to?

  1. Wonderful post, thanks for posting the Making Time to Live badge - I love the photo of the seedpods and the idea that they herald the snowflakes to come, I never would have thought of that lovely association - Ben
