I love nature’s palette in October. The golden yellow, deep orange, crimson red and all the shades in between create such a warm and soothing background for life. It’s been fun to see so many others also appreciating nature’s beauty as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter explode with color from posted photos.

Today, I am thankful for October’s burst of color. 

Trees. Pumpkins. Apples. Mums. Have you noticed their colors? Really noticed them?

Today, consider making an extra effort to be fully present to the colors all around you as you head to work, drive through your neighborhood, run in a local park, or shop at a farmers’ market. If you need a break from a harried day, use your lunch time to stop in a flower shop or local produce store just to walk around and stimulate your senses. Tonight, start a dinner conversation with your kids about the changes we observe in Autumn.

For now, take a deep breath and think of your favorite Autumn memory. What colors do you see in your mind’s eye?
