There are so many meanings to the word layers.
Here in New England the Autumn season can be cold. Layer up! Layer up! Put on a hat, grab a scarf, put on your sweater or poncho! Take a blanket! But also... Go out and play! Play in the layers of leaves on the ground. The dirt and the leaves and the sticks are all layers on the earth this time of year.
I took my daughter and a
pile of blankets and scarves and shawls and headed out to a neighborhood park. We took our layers with us, and found so many layers waiting for us. Trees, bare of leaves, and trees still holding onto their autumn colorful leaves, and pine needles blanketing the earth, leaves making a layer on top of the pine needles, sticks and branches, tree limbs layered over the earth. So many layers were out in the forest on this cool November afternoon!
We brought blankets, and scarves, and quilts and ruffles and bloomers and a shawl and braved the cold and wind. We layered up, and spent a beautiful few hours with our faces turned toward the wind and the earth on our feet.....
