Autumn is my favourite season, but this one is proving quite chaotic and unpredictable.
As the leaves begin to turn into a riot of colour, I've barely noticed. As so often happens in life, unexpected challenges arrive, shining a beacon on priorities - and leaving everything else in the shade.
Luckily, our own garden offers a glimpse into nature's seasonal changes.
The swans have returned to "our" canal, after summering elsewhere. And I'm hoping for smooth sailing - and swan-like serenity - through rough waters. Quite unexpectedly, my husband David was admitted to hospital last Thursday morning and is having surgery Tuesday in Amsterdam. It will be his third surgery (unrelated to the previous two) this year!
We hope the surgery is a fairly simple procedure, but are awaiting further word from a cardiac specialist. All good wishes, positive energy and prayers are appreciated.
