For every fall there is a spring in our step

I hope the sun’s rays are delightfully breezing across the soft pigment of your face on this fine Fall day and that you pause — just for a fleeting moment — to reflect on the beauty that is the changing of the guard on our treasured Canadian arbors.

‘Tis a season that smacks of irony; how can something so lovely simply fall to the ground.

Ah, but it is life, no? We must fall in order to spring again.

How are we to stand tall — like the arbors — if we don’t at times fall?

And that rise — like that of the sun — is powerful. It reminds us not to harbor ill-will or a concentrated chagrin.

It encourages us to be tall.

For every fall there is a spring in our step.

And the sun will once again delightfully breeze across your face.

  1. Hi Dan,

    Seriously, you must have ESP:)
    So appropriate for the debacle that was last week and the resurgence “hopefully!!” this me trying to right the sinking ship of one of my projects this week.

    Cheers,
    Ang.
