Rules of Autumn:
-Kiss the leaves before they show their true colors.
-Study your fingerprints until you find out your history.
-Smile at every stranger.
-Go deep inside yourself until you get to the spinning light. Stay there.
-Thank a tree for your breath.
-Knit a scarf made of the things you wish you said this Summer. Give it to someone who will wrap it tightly around his heart for when it gets cold.
-Watch the sunrise. Pretend you are the sun. Study your palm lines until you find out your future.
-Be the trees that lose their leaves. Die from your old self. You will bloom again in the spring. You always do.
-Emery Allen (via eternalsquaredance

…and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?
-Vincent van Gogh
