In my head, I think of change as a gradual happening. And I think a lot of change is gradual. But when I think about some of the bigger changes in my life, especially the changes recently, it was anything but gradual. People say change doesn't happen overnight, but I'm pretty sure that, sometimes, it does.
Over the summer, I changed, a lot. And it all happened rather fast, during the last two weeks of August really. Part of it was growing up, but a lot of it was simple change. I stand today and look back at a few weeks ago and I feel like a completely different person. And I can't really tell you all the bits and pieces where I'm different, or even really recognize why I'm different; all I know is that I am a very different person than I was at the beginning of the summer, or even the beginning of September.
All of this to say that I am excited about fall. I got a new haircut a few weeks ago and I am this new person, and couple that with a new season and just about everything has me excited about life! I feel like this new season, coming right after so much change, has so much possibility and just endless opportunities.
So I started a new art journal project to go along with this wonderful season. A second Fall In Love book. And I am excited about it. I am excited about recording the new and the possibility and the endless. The change and the autumn season. And the life that is now.
