Autumn in Penrith

I was feeling slightly bummed about not having the time and opportunity to go up to the mountains as yet, due to the unfriendly weather and extra placement days this year. Was feeling sorry about missing the autumn colors. What a pleasant to have this beautiful sight greeted me one weekend morning, just along the road nearby!

5 minutes till I needed to run for the bus, and so I started snapping in the early morning light.

Really loving the autumn colors! And also feeling slightly sad that this is possibly my last autumn in Aussieland. All the more reason to cherish and live in the moment 🙂

Waiting… and Waiting.

waiting for spring

Sometimes life feels like a giant cycle of waiting.

Waiting for each moment to pass,

Waiting for each day to end and a new day to start.

Waiting for celebrations, waiting for holidays, waiting for the weekends.

Waiting for milestones in life – to grow up, to graduate, to work, to meet someone? To start a family? To… ?

(Though of course, not everyone waits for the same things in life)

Waiting, with the danger of never fully living each day.

But.

This waiting, although futile, may be just the thing that keeps us going.

For, like the only thing that sees one through the bleakest mid-winters –

Is the Faith that Spring will come again.

And so, we wait.
