Apples, Fall, Leaves and Dying


Eleanor,
It's the season of Fall. Fall is Papa's favorite time of the year. And if you like apples, and I see you do, it's really great.
It's  a time of harvest. A time of gathering the fruits of summer.
It's also that time of year when the things of nature go back to the earth, from which they came.
The leaves let go of the tree and die, going back to the earth.
I guess you could call it the season of dying as much as you could call it the season of fall.

Everything that is given life is also given death Eleanor.
Realizing death can enhance your life Eleanor.
Someone somewhere once said, " we need to learn to die before we die."
Chew on that for a while.

love you,
Papa
