Love this time of year, so much!!
1. Just like a tree has three main parts: a crown, a trunk, and a root system, so the nervous system has three main parts: a brain, a spinal cord, and all the nerves that go to and from your spinal cord to the rest of your body.
2. Just like a tree is able to send water and nutrients from the roots to the crown and vice versa, you can send messages from your brain to the rest of your body and vice versa.
3. Just like the roots of a tree begin as small individual roots spread over a wide area, your nervous system begins as individual cells called neurons that are spread all throughout your body.
4. Just like the small roots of a tree join together into bigger and bigger roots as they get closer to the tree trunk, your neurons join together into bigger and bigger bundles, called nerves, as they get closer to the spinal cord.
5. Just like all the roots of the tree join together to form the trunk, your nerves all join together into one big bundle called the spinal cord.
6. Just like the branches of a tree split off the trunk and spread out throughout the crown, your nerves diverge again at the top end of your spinal cord and spread throughout your brain.

Autumn for many is a time to capture yellow and pity the summer days left behind.
Yet I am deeply, even mystically attracted to its nakedness and cold veins of trees.
Crystal clear air reveals insights no longer hidden in fallen leaves. Each breath tastes like melancholy but not for long. Soon everything left behind will be whitened away. The circle of motion and memories will reset once again..
