“Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.”

—Albert Camus, 20th Century French Philosopher

Our society embraces youth, beauty, and vitality. These qualities seem to coincide with the spring and summer, where new growth begins and we bloom into our fullness.

As we age, we enter the autumn of our lives. I embrace the metaphor of leaves, in all their wondrous colors, being a second spring. With aging and life experience, we can discover new forms of inner beauty and wisdom.


How can you embrace every moment and every season of your life?

What beauty can you find in where you are and who you have become?
