With the end of October fast approaching and the nights drawing darker, I take stock of the year and harvest my thoughts.
For me it has been a summer of hard earned lessons and a few more battle scars to add to the character. But I am still here, still watching and learning, still passing on what I have learned to those who want it. Much as in the ways of those who have gone before me and will follow.
I hope to enjoy warmth in body, mind and spirit. I will pay my respects to the land and to those who have borne wisdom over the ages. I will also do my best to earn the respect of those who follow in later years.
Rest well fellow traveller, I hope winter is kind to you and shows you her beauty.
