I took this picture over the weekend in Addison, Vermont on a trip to Philadelphia. It struck me so much that October and early November can feel like a migratory transition time for a lot of us for a lot of different reasons. There is a natural shift as the length of our days and temperatures change. Watching the geese and knowing that they are heading south soon made me think about which seasonal shifts I want to execute in my life. I want to try to be mindful and deliberate in these choices. What needs your attention now?
