New Beginnings Are a Glorious Thing


The First Day Of October    My Day Of New Beginnings       Photo Credit SonShineAndRain



This tree resides just east of my front door. The morning I took this photograph I simply stepped out the door angled  to the right and look up and snapped. I didn’t do any fancy alterations to it at all,what you see is exactly what I saw.

I love autumn. As the leaves  change (although I since I live in So California the changes aren’t as noticeable) there is still a distinct  feel of the settled  cooling that only fall brings.  In nature the autumn equinox  represents a stage of preparation for the winter that will follow .

In my youth I didn’t understand that as such, but I always felt it. When most people were going about the normal business of  coming celebrations of the fall October Halloween, and November Thanksgiving which follows a month later I always  began what I felt was my New Year preparation. I don’t like waiting until January 1st  to begin contemplating another year of life and growth…Yes even as a child I though about those sorts of things  as I watch lots of Mr.Ed and Batman and reruns :-)

October is the month of my birth, right in the middle of the month and I believe I came to understand October as a time of my new beginnings.

Always A Good Thing

I guess it is the impatience I seem to have been “blessed” with. Along with many other things in my TM life with this post, I am back with a new perspective, a grateful attitude if even one person who read my post before has by some miracle happened across my return to one of my  (too) many passions and enjoyments in life. The difference now is I will share a lot more of them right here while I continue to figure out what’s a TrackMom to do as her TrackGirl runs for her dream and into her future.

At any rate if you have been a visitor of you couldn’t have miss the fact that I abruptly stop writing shortly after (or was it in the middle?) Junior Olympics 2013.  But even before that I was  coming up a little empty on writing posts I thought would be meaningful and fun for my audience .

Thus the hiatus until I figured out why I was writing  and what I want to write about or should I continue to write….. Guess you figured out in part my conclusion….

I  happily welcome you  or welcome you back and invite you join in the newest version of Me  and . As I cozy up to my  favorite toy..My iMac and figure out just what makes me tick and maybe you too, there will be some new things as Lauren begins her second year of high school and her first season of high school track  as part of Oaks Christian Track and Field Track Team.
