Last weekend, I took some time to sit on our cottage deck, soaking in the last few rays of summer. There’s always something a bit sad about Labour Day weekend. Like all good things, summer must come to an end. Joe and I enjoyed some bruschetta, made with tomatoes purchased at the local farmer’s market and basil harvested from our garden. We took the time to savour the rich flavour of the food in front of us, enjoying the stillness of the lake and the calmness of the moment.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of daily life, forgetting to slow down and savour the colours, smells and textures around us. Autumn is a particularly good time for this. I invite you to take photos of the natural beauty around you. Capture a shot of something that settles you: something that bring you peace. Take a moment to write a line about what makes it special and send it to Mackenzie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
