schedules and obligations bind.
then fall enters with its explosion of color and wisps of chil in the air. a gentle beckoning to slowness. an invitation to linger.
linger under fluffy duvet covers holding tight the one you love.
linger hand in hand crunching leaves under foot.
linger over warm lips, soft to touch.
linger over hot coffee and the sounds of birds not yet ready to fly south.
linger over sunshine bouncing off the cheeks of children twirling.
linger over conversations with friends.
linger over stories shared by little ones.
linger over meals and the fullness they bring.
linger over memories made.
[linger :: to be slow in parting or quitting something]
let us be slow in parting this season.
