Beautiful! That was my first reaction to seeing today's photos from Dave Moyle. What an amazing blanket of leaves they have covering their Bootjack yard. Some people would look at this and think only of the work involved in raking all these colorful leaves UP before the winter snow flies, but not Dave and his wife Amy. These two embrace the beauty and enjoy it while they can.

I learned something new with these photos, as I wasn't sure if Amy was in a meditation pose or a yoga pose in the second photo, so I asked her about it. She enlightened me with the following:

"It is a yoga pose, and a form of meditation, really. Namaste means "I bow to you": basically thanking the world and the people around you. Whatever the individual wants to be aware of and thankful for. As you breathe and ground yourself at the beginning and end of a yoga session, usually. What a beautiful world we live in... especially us up here! Loving the seasons and my photographer husband!"
We can all learn something here today from Dave and Amy... to slow down our busy lives and take the time to enjoy everything that surrounds us. See the beauty, smell the beauty, feel the beauty and be thankful!

I'd like a slow down in my busy life.... problem is the vehicle following would probably rear-end me from behind!! ;-)

Great shots Dave, and any minute now I expect to see Amy float away in a sea of colour......

Another beautiful set of Fall photos! I love the
colors! I wish Fall would last longer and shorten
the winter a bit. This has definitely been a good

That's the glory of Fall in the UP especially Bootjack. The gales of November are not far behind!

Capt. Paul - not sure where you are in the great state of Texas, but with all the rain , I hope you continue to "float your boat"!! Stay safe!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, October 23, 2015 - 11:24 pm:

Greta: we're near Houston, apparently right in the path of the heaviest rain that is forecast for Texas. Like I wrote in WhatsUP, we have plenty of board games and single malt to keep us occupied for a while. ;-)

Now that's the way to do it! :)
