The big blue truck takes me down the Midland Trail just as it does nearly every day. The exception being that this time the sun is higher in the sky than usual. The cool Fall rains have fallen softly onto the mountains rescuing the chance for those Fall Colors. The changes are still in the early stages as lush green leaves begin to shift into the different tones. The Kanawha River peacefully echoes the forests as they reveal their glory to all of creation. I have no particular schedual today and it’s a perfect moment to stop by the water and refill my “tranquility reserves”.
As gaze at the wonderful creation thats been laid out before my eyes the thought that fills my heart is that “Light is the language of the forest and the trees sing in harmony”.
What must it be like to be able to actually hear their voices?
Believe it or not, there is an answer to that question. There’s a rare medical condition known as Synesthesia where some people see sounds and hear color. (Clicking the blue link takes you to a virtual reality video of what it’s like to experience Synesthesia). A good Appalachian Fall must be quite a concert for those people. I can only imagine what that would be but my imagination sees a sound graph in the reflections on the water.
As the season progresses the songs will come to crescendo and slowly fade away as a lullaby when the forest sleeps and only the silence will echo through the mountains.
