autumn leaves

October 28th, 2011

Last week I was back in Philly visiting my dad for his 84th birthday and it was typical fall weather — cool and crisp with falling leaves. A flashback to my childhood and yet so strangely familiar after almost a quarter of a century away from it. Surrounded by family and childhood friends, I felt so grateful for the moments we spent together — mindfully taking in the experience as I watch the years go by and the generations move forward.

Being back in Santa Monica I also feel so incredibly grateful for so many things including the fact that it’s supposed to sleet and snow in the Northeast this weekend. Although I enjoy visiting the snow here on the West Coast, it’s a true privilege to have 75 degree weather on October 28th.
