Example: ‘My husband was in a wheelchair, I was pushing him along a promenade. At the end of the promenade was a path which we took.
The path went along the top of a cliff.
The sea below was pretty rough, a typical autumn day at the seaside. All of a sudden the path came to an end’ (Mrs C). Mrs C had this dream at a time when she staned her own business, against her husband’s wishes, and one week before he walked out on her. Autumn here depicts her sense of something ending. Can also be: ‘the autumn of one’s life’; mellow feelings.
Time to work, Prov. 20:4
The falling and dying of leaves is an indication that some part of one’s life is doing the same
