All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream. - Poe
I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free. - Wendell Berry
There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more. - Lord Byron
SolanaceaeOne of my favorites!

It's so strange that autumn is so beautiful; yet everything is dying.
RavenshawThat's what I love best about it. It's so easy to get caught up in the chaos of death - it's nice to have a reminder that beauty exists not just in rebirth but in death itself. As a human, death is often partnered by sorrow, yet outside of our scope it is something so different. I struggle with embracing this side of things, and autumn reminds me to step back and see it with clearer eyes.
