You enjoyed the random beauty of nature; the kaleidoscope of autumn colors cast boldly against a greying sky. Endless hours may have been spent interpreting the shapes of clouds and analyzing deeper meanings behind swirling packets of fallen leaves racing across the landscape. I did it for only a half-hour last week and was surprised at how well it refreshed me spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and physically.
