    The Fall Season of Our Lives

    “Staying young forever is an impossible burden. Our bodies change. We slow down. We grow old. Growing old is a natural process of the life cycle; . . .  it is a time to open our minds and deepen into the wisdom and strengths that are inherently our own.” ~Eve Reed The Fall season of our life is the time to realize our whole self.
