Leaves are Gone

For the most part, the trees are bare, but this fall has been spectacular.

Last week, there was one day where it was sunny, warm, and very windy. The leaves were swirling in giant shapes. I was driving and the song “Miracles” by Jefferson Airplane was on the radio. It was hypnotic. “If only you’d believe like I really believe, like I believe, we’d get by…” It was a little surreal.

This is what you always imagine fall should be like and almost never is.

The weather will start sucking soon, but I don’t care as much now that I am no longer stuck shoveling snow with a house I can’t take care of. It feels so good to not be a homeowner.

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.
