Autumn Path by Julie Marks

This is my favorite path that is very peaceful and serene. I have several photos of this lovely place in sepia and color. The sepia photo titled
“Timeless Path” shows the light at the end of
the path, symbolic of entering a new realm in
this world or when entering the light after

In autumn, the leaves are vibrant and viewing
this path in this close perspective can create the feeling that you are there. The solitary man walking the path is on a journey he takes everyday to clear his mind feeling miles away from the stress of city life that in reality is only minutes away.

This photograph was taken in Topanga State
Park in Los Angeles. Viewing this beautiful scenery in the larger format will enhance the intimate feeling of being one with nature. Sally Omar, a very perceptive and sensitive poet on RB adds dimension to this image with her beautiful poetry:

“When I am in my golden years
Finished with all my fears
There is an Autumn Path I intend to walk
With no frivolous talk
I will want peace and serenity
No more play then for me
Walking there enjoying the view
Life again will seem brand new
The path will be so bright
Filled with richness and with light
No more worry about convictions
Or life’s many restrictions
I will travel the path alone
Happy to once be on my own
No more anxiety
I will finally be set free
I will forget the past
And the happiness will last
Tired from life’s drudgery
The Autumn Path is all I see.”

    Love the lush and vibrant colours of Autumn path. Very alluring and makes me want to walk there. Love nature and feel very inspired in its presence. Your works are visual feast and a pleasure for my senses.

    Wonderful. We don’t always realize how good it feels to be away from the stress of city life and how a walk in nature can prove to be a relaxing healing journey. I love your description; it reminds me of when I take walks in a park near my place. It looks better in large, but seeing it here and reading your description I am already indulged into the experience.

    Yes….a wonderfully healing place to walk, that’s for sure. Thank goodness, wherever we are there is beauty all around us to enjoy and feel that healing presence. Nature is so wonderful…..even in a city there are sometimes flashes of nature to heal….I always remember travelling on a train, leaving the grottiest part of London on a bleak and grey day….and right out of the blue there was a flowering cherry tree…that was many years ago…but I still think of the wonder of its beauty, right there in the midst of tenement buildings. It lifted my spirit :-)
