“When we say things like “people don’t change” it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It’s always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It’s the way people try not to change that’s unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change, that’s up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.”
It’s that time again, the best time of year that I thrive in. The rain started this morning, and I happy pulled on a giant sweater and my boots, thrilled that it’s time for warm clothing again. Next comes the changing colors, the October birthdays, Thanksgiving, the December birthdays (with my twins!) and Christmas. I am just so insanely happy for this time of year, with Jeremy and I celebrating two years together, and the change that comes with the last months of the year. This is always a new beginning for me, which is obvious to anyone who knows me, September signals change.
I want to nurture old friendships, make more time for chats over coffee, and bake a few good pies:) I’m just…happy. I want to spread it around a little.
