Change (Nature of Being)

Fall is here, and with it a season rooted in change. I have recently identified my favorite sound; the sound of wind rippling along the leaves. I sense I resonate with this sound as it speaks to a changing of environment. Were it not for the wind, the leaves may never shake from their homes…
