Fall

Haiku by Katherine Loyacano

Crisp leaves tumbling.

Amber skies and pumpkin pies,

awaken my soul.

Happy Fall, Ya’ll! My favorite season of the year finally arrived last Wednesday, and I welcomed the season by displaying a few fall decorations on my front porch and inside my home, and I engaged in a couple of enjoyable activities to make the autumnal arrival more meaningful. I recorded a vlog of my first day of fall afternoon, which Kelsi graciously edited for me, and I now get to share with you, dear reader. I hope you enjoy it. Happiness!

“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.” ~ Oscar Wilde

KUDOS: Many thanks to Kelsi for editing my vlog and adding both music and graphics along with my audio recording of the the poem, ”Nothing Gold Can Stay” by Robert Frost. You’re the BEST, Kelsi!

School’s out for the summer, and I could not be happier. My summer vacation has officially started and will last until the end of July.

I have listed the highlights of my summer plans. However, I am definitely open to other activities that may crop up throughout the summer, such as visiting the beautiful animals at the Audubon Zoo, working on my tan at the beach, or taking a road trip to Bainbridge, Georgia to see my Uncle Robert and Aunt Mary’s new home. In addition to my fun list, I will also be chipping away at a few of the items on my 21 for 2021 list. What will your summer look like this year, dear reader? Hopefully, it will include some fun and relaxing activities. Happiness!

SPRING

Haiku by Katherine Walters Loyacano

Flowers blossoming.

Sun-kissed days amidst chirping,

renew my spirit.

Spring officially arrived yesterday. While temperatures were slightly cooler than preferred, nature welcomed the new season with open arms amid a vast array of beautiful blossoms. To my delight, the sun even made a brief appearance. I spent a good chunk of the day at Fairview Riverside State Park in Madisonville, enjoying nature, the company of friends (socially distanced, of course), and boiled crawfish. It was my first crawfish feast of the season, and those mudbugs were seasoned to perfection.

Spring is a time of renewal, dear reader. It is a perfect time to clear out the clutter (physically and mentally), develop healthy habits, and create some change. Although this can be done other times throughout the year, taking action in the spring feels fitting. For me, it is about completing first quarter of the year goals, wrapping up a commitment, and the excitement of starting something new. I’m more energized and ready to make changes. And, I love spending more time outside surrounded by nature, especially taking longer walks in the evening. How about you, dear reader? What does the spring season mean to you? Happiness!

“There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature-the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ~ Rachel Carson
