What is it about fall and winter that makes us feel some kind of a way? The changing of leaves, beautiful scenery, holidays, cool evenings, winter boots, flannel shirts, and cuddling in front of the fireplace. These months are darkened by the time change (falling back/springing forward), but that’s where I find my favorites; comforting outfits and foods to warm me up from the inside out when it starts to get chilly! As the nights cool to a brisk chill, time change days are shortened, and the changing of the leaves. It’s part of mother nature to clean from all the mess we made during spring and summer months. Fall is cooler to kill off germs, bacteria, and sickness. Changing of leaves reminds me of the “out with the old,in with the new”. A time to regroup ourselves. Everything seems to slow down in pace, comfort is more noticeable than spring and summer months. It reminds me of cleaning our minds and inner being. As time creates laziness, “me time”, and our thoughts fall in season.

🍁 The changing of leaves 🍂
As the days begin to shorten and the temperature drops, the leaves start to change and create a stunning visual all over the world. The trees, normally alive with greens and browns, transform into a canvas of reds, oranges, and yellows. With the changing of leaves comes a subtle reminder of the changing of seasons.
The changing of leaves is not only beautiful to look at, but it can be a source of comfort as well. It serves as a reminder that despite the darkening of days and the chill in the air, new life is around the corner. The leaves may be dying and falling off, but they symbolize the hope that spring will come eventually. This hope brings warmth to our hearts and minds as we enter into a season of darkness and cold.
The changing of leaves also gives us an opportunity to take part in outdoor activities while enjoying nature. Whether it’s going on a hike to see the changing foliage, or just taking a leisurely stroll through the park, there are plenty of opportunities to appreciate and admire nature’s seasonal 🍁transformation.
The changing of leaves is truly a magical experience that brings with it the promise of brighter days ahead. As we take in the beauty of this special time of year, may we all find comfort in knowing that the light will eventually return.

🦋 Beautiful scenery
As the days get shorter and the temperatures start to drop, we are reminded of all the beauty that the fall and winter months bring. The changing of leaves creates a stunning display of vibrant oranges, reds, and yellows that blanket the ground. Trees become adorned with colorful foliage, 🍂making them look like a masterpiece crafted by an artist. The scent of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and fresh apples fills the air, bringing warmth and comfort.
The crisp autumn air gives us the perfect opportunity to take a walk and admire the natural beauty of nature. The chilly evenings provide us with an excuse to curl up by the fire and enjoy some hot cocoa. And, of course, who could forget winter snowfall? The sight of snowflakes falling from the sky can be mesmerizing; it’s like a winter wonderland. ❄️
The fall and winter months offer so much beauty and tranquility, it’s no wonder why we feel some kind of a way when they roll around. From the changing of leaves to the winter snowfall, these two seasons provide us with a unique experience that can only be appreciated in person. So grab your scarf, wrap yourself up in a cozy blanket, and go out and explore all that these months have to offer.

❄️ Holidays
There is something truly special about the fall and winter months. Whether it be the changing of leaves, the beautiful scenery, or the holidays, these months bring out a unique sense of comfort and joy in all of us. During this time, evenings become cooler, sweaters come out, boots are worn and many of us find ourselves cuddling up in front of a warm fireplace. 🔥
Holidays are an integral part of the fall and winter months. From Halloween to Christmas, there are so many opportunities to spend quality time with family and friends, share stories and create memories that will last a lifetime. Celebrating holidays is a great way to celebrate tradition and make each season special.
For those who find themselves living far away from family and friends during the holidays, there are still plenty of ways to experience the joys of the season. One way is to celebrate alone by indulging in favorite holiday activities such as baking treats, decorating the house, or wrapping presents. Doing these activities alone can bring just as much joy as spending time with others.
No matter how you choose to spend your fall and winter months, remember to cherish each moment and create wonderful memories that will last forever.

🆒 Cool evenings
As the summer months come to an end, we are blessed with cooler evenings and the changing of leaves. The sun sets earlier and earlier, leaving us with a peaceful darkness to embrace. These cool evenings can be the perfect time to cozy up and relax with your loved ones. Grab a blanket and a mug of hot cocoa, light up a fire in the fireplace, and curl up on the couch. It’s the perfect atmosphere to share stories or simply enjoy each other’s company without feeling the heat of summer. Whether you’re out taking a night stroll or enjoying a movie indoors, these cool evenings offer something special that can’t be found anywhere else.🍿
And let’s not forget about the gorgeous scenery of fall that comes with it. The changing of leaves from green to red, orange, and yellow make for some stunning visuals that can be admired from any angle. Taking the time to observe all the beauty this season has to offer will put your heart and soul at ease.

The Art of Gathering

Times and Gathering

Oh, how the times of gatherings have lost the shine. Interactions and communication are fundamental values to our well-being. The laughter, tears, sorrows, and happiness that others give us in this lifetime. Simple moments that fill our lives with a sense of purpose. Those moments that take place when we gather. During holidays, birthdays, important milestones in our lives. Why gatherings are important and why gatherings help maintain mental health. If you’re wondering where people are gathered today – well the importance of the “Art of Gatherings” is for you.

* Gatherings I can remember as a child family gatherings included large groups of people. Family that included long friends of the family and many more. Gatherings of lots of drinking, grilling out, kids running in the yard, playing horseshoes, volleyball, badminton, belly hurting laughter, and just good times. Those memories create my foundation to my own character. We learn from our childhood how we treat and respect others. The Art of Gatherings are important elements that give opportunity for memories. As a child I had uncles, aunts, grandparents, cousins, nephews, nieces that I grew up with. Those are family members that help shape who I am and have become.

* Time Changes with Age Time changes those gatherings overtime. The gatherings get smaller as loved ones age and leave this earth. We don’t notice until those gatherings are memories of those that once attended aren’t there. An empty chair at the dinner table. Those faces are with their children and grandchildren. Or maybe they have passed on. Our group has branched off to subdivide into other group gatherings. It’s not personal or your fault, life is what happened. Do they get busy with life and fail to attend gatherings? Or do they have larger functions and gatherings elsewhere? Do people still gather? Has the loss of loved ones put a toll on your Art of Gatherings?


* Picture of Who? The old black and dark colored photos in old albums your parents or grandparents kept. Albums that pictures are falling out of. Old albums that have such high value. One thing we can’t ever replace -photos. If found please keep and protect. Who has photo albums in 2022? Who has a physical camera that takes photos? Has gatherings changed the way we create photo albums? Photo albums are antique, physical pictures are precious diamonds. Who looks at old faded books or albums of photos, these days? Honestly, I do. Those photos are one of two things that live on after we expire. Photos are forever if properly stored and valued. (The other thing that continues after we expire is your signature).

Photo albums for 2022 are cell phones. Everyone has one and those photos should be available to show off daily. But do you glance at those photos after they are saved to your phone? Friends those phones will not hold the value to a photo album. Most of us can say, dang I had 1200 photos on my old phone. Impressive, right? Then the phone broke and those photos are gone. There is no replacement for those moments. That image is stored in memory of our mind. Sadly, we can describe a perfect moment, but our minds can’t print that picture in time.

The Art of Gatherings have a purpose for memories and photos. Take time to use a camera and create a family photo album. An album you created today, is worth a million words to those who inherit the photo album. Do yourself a favor if anything else. Take time to teach your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighboring children – The Art of Gatherings. Educate our future generation the value of appreciation of gatherings memories, and photo albums. The creation of a scrapbook or a family photo album teaches the value and appreciation to life. Mentally, emotionally, and physically form an attachment to memories and gatherings. The lost art of love can be reborn. Love is created by us who spread the word. Don’t continue to let technology form our future children’s beliefs. Gatherings is in person with photos to place in a photo album. Not the space and time spent on the web/internet that fills illusions of life.

In the final thoughts, The Art of Gatherings, help us deal with challenges. Challenges offer the opportunity to be “live in person”. Where feelings are felt, the good, bad, ugly raw emotions that create us. Feelings that teach us sadness, respect, happiness, love, anger, pain, and the value of an Art of Gatherings. Today is an opportunity to teach a lost value, that can live on longer after you expire. Are you teaching today? Tomorrow? Or sometime soon? I know you have amazing teaching skills. You lived life in the Art of Gatherings. You are a piece of Art that is forever through photos and your signature. Share your teaching skills, everyone’s teachable.

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋
