We are a few days into the Fall season. Where I live, San Diego, it's still hot as summer, with more hot days ahead. There are no nearby forests with leaves that change color...no nip in the air at night...no smell of wood fires..not good ones anyways. How do you find inspiration in the season, when it's so hard to see?, so hard to feel? Here are some ways that work for me.
FOOD. Nothing says fall to me like pumpkin pie. Not just for Thanksgiving dinner...and it's got squash in it too...tasty, good for you, pretty to look at, warm fall color. It works for me.
LEAVES. Even green ones.
HOLIDAYS AHEAD. They're coming. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's. I'm not ready to think about that....so it's time now to pause, reflect, be grateful for these days of quiet before the holiday season is here.
ART. Let the art you make inspire the season if the season doesn't inspire the art....it's all in how you look at it.
