I was out early this morning and as so often happens at this lovely time of year I was taken by the beautiful colours of the leaves on the ground and there it was… a little eureka moment! These leaves have worked hard all year feeding and nourishing the tree to grow, and now fall to the ground, no longer with the purpose that they once had, but suddenly full of beauty in their changed appearance with a new raison d’être to fulfil over a more gentle passage of time.

I feel there is food for thought here and a perspective on menopause I have missed.
