Outside, a magnificent transformation is taking place as leaves change colour, drift through the air and fall to become earth again. Autumn truly brings a feeling of slowing down, release and letting go.
I see this season as a reminder that reading, listening and observing are integral parts of the creative process, so I wanted to share an autumnal reading list filled with poetry, fiction and books on food, nature and creativity. All reflect both the season’s beauty and its invitation to turn inward.
