Autumn of Life

in dailythoughts •  6 months ago 

Unbelievable how much water fell out the sky and the day afterwards it looked like it was Spring again. Well, not if you really see these colors on the wall. Some beauty there actually. Maybe I should be an Autumn fanatic after all in stead of being such a hater.

I always have the feeling bad crap happens in Autumn. We call the Autumn of Life that for a reason. I actually don't know if this is an English saying as well, but in Dutch this is called 'de herfst van het leven', meaning the transition phase from beauty to eternal wintersleep.

Everything seems paused, on standby, waiting for better days. Waiting untill King Winter reaches and the streets are covered with snow. Waiting until putting Christmas lights in your tree is accepted again and not frowned upon 'because this is way too early'. For me it is surely waiting before I move again to my next home in a couple of months. My homecoming. But until then, waiting.


Until my grande exit at the end of the year I am trying to turn some students into mini-me's which hopefully will put some useful stuff in their brain that will help them along the line in their carreer. I still remember a lot things word to word of the people who trained me and sometimes even in what setting that this was. I was impressed by their knowledge and hopefully I am doing the same to the students, so one day they can bring over the stuff that they had learned from me, which I had learned from somebody else over to their students. The cycle of knowledge

My work brings all aspects of life in there. From the happiness from a childbirth or the curing of a critical illness, to the death of someone who was not ready for it, or maybe receiving a deadly diagnosis. It all hangs around us every day in my business and it is sometimes to weird to see all these emotions colliding in a central room. Sometimes the cycle seems a bit broken, but hey....at least we have a cycle to live by right?
