One usually thinks of autumn as the winding down of things in preparation of winter. I came across this seed pod while walking through the woods a couple of days ago and realized that here was a preparation for the spring to come.

The pod had split open, revealing seeds with silky threads that would catch the wind and be borne to new locations to germinate in the spring. I'm reminded that I can work now to leave a legacy that will continue long after I pass from the scene. And perhaps it's in these photographs that I make.
