Origami Maple Leaves

I really enjoy the effect and the creation of these origami maple leaves. As maple leaves turn and the season once again changes, I have to pause and reflect on this past year in utter amazement. How is it that we are closing in on 2022 so quickly? It comes as though 2020 trudged on endlessly and now the leaves reflect the setting sun as night begins to fall on this present year. As this magical time approaches, I watch how the leaves are turning yellow with anticipation for what comes next.

Although autumn can be dreary and dark. I see it as a season of hope because it invites us to dream of what a new day will bring. It’s for that reason that I enjoy ideas for fall decor. It gives us the brilliance and the beauty ofmaple leaves colour change in the shelter of the indoor spaces which insulate us from the cold and gloomy side of the season.
