Change of the Season

Images speak without words. And here, at Figments, you see lots of them. But every now and then some words are needed to release the flow that is bottled up inside. A flow that is constantly changing, learning and growing. This flow is called life, and each day our lives are altered by the choices we make, the people we meet. My life is enriched by you all, my friends. Thank you so much.

And now autumn of 2013 has arrived. A season of ripeness and harvesting. We can look back at a glorious summer and have to get ready for winter. And I need to wish you all a blessed Fall in abundance. A time to get together with your loved ones. When sun shines on warmest colors, mornings in crispy coldness and yes, also storms and rain. In stead of avoiding it, step out and feel that rain. Let it gently caress your face and wash you clean; dance with head uplifted.

Each season has a special charm and in the autumn of my life, I treasure, respect and say thanks for all that is given me. Even rain showers. 😉

How about you? Are you affected by the changing of the seasons? By the summer that has gone by or the spring that is about to begin on the other side of this planet? Please share.

Almost Coat Time

My Saturday in six words:

They forced me, yes FORCED me to buy these autumn tokens at the garden center this morning (last photo). And I know the fake furry animals really are not classy or stylish… but to hell with taste: I like them! They give my living room a gentle touch of autumn and silliness. I love silliness 😉

By the way, the little one is nibbling on a real sequoia pine I took home with me from the USA last month.

Enjoy your coat this weekend! 😀

Skin Dipping

Yes. Those are my feet in the Pacific! 😉


And there’s no better place for them for now. Soon I’ll be back home again though, and write about all the figments in my head.

Until then (and after): have so much summer fun!
