Photoperiodism: the mechanism by which many of our hardwood trees regulate their various life processes, including preparing for winter.

aka....the leaves change colors.  And ironically, this is the time of year I seem to go through my own photoperiodism.  The change of season always provokes a reflection and quest for change within me, as well as looking back on the entire year, and thinking of what's to come in the next one.

Right now...

i am loving organizing, fall cleaning, moving around scrapbook storage, adding some new items, layouts with one big picture & a few smaller ones, {really loving one big picture to tell a story} transparencies/vellum overlays, using song lyrics for journaling

i am wanting to catch up on a few unfinished summer layouts, keep up to date with what’s going on now and get ready for the holiday season

i am thinking about 2013, the possibilities, what my one little word will be, what new ventures a new year will bring

i am yearning for change, reinvention, metamorphosis {i like change}

i am working on a strategy for next year’s scrapbooking everyday things, mastering my manual photography techniques, improving time management {as always}

i am surprised by how i am getting better & quicker with my manual settings, how tall & grown-up my nephew is getting

i am trying to be thankful everyday, enjoy the little things, do more for the ones I love, be happy with everything i have right now in the moment and not worry to much about the rest

i am worrying about how I will get it all done!, people who I know are suffering or dealing with hard times, the state of our nation & its future

i am remembering fall seasons' past, reflecting on my life, loved ones who are far away or no longer here
