Time for a new attitude of gratitude and fond memories to gently move me in the right direction.

Back to basics and focusing on the physical.
Food wise, I have done well, but there is another component to incorporate.
Perhaps that may even chase away the doldrums that seem to envelope me, this time of year since my oldest son died.

He would want me to enjoy Autumn, with the same childlike wonder, I have always had.
