With Halloween now over and daylight savings time here, there is definitely a change in the air. Hello November ! Hello Fall ! The cooler temperatures bring a different, colorful energy and a crispness in the air that is felt by many. I constantly hear “I love this weather”, “I just want to be outside”, “this weather makes me want to put my boots on” or “I just want to make a big pot of soup”. It’s a feeling that we feel deep down to want to do something different than what we’ve been doing in the warmer weather…and it feels good. We listen and we adjust. It’s just what we naturally do. It’s the rhythm of the change in seasons.
With the full moon waning, the night sky is still pretty lit up, bright and beautiful. If you haven’t had a chance to get outside in the evening and look up, please, feel free to do so. During this rhythm of seasonal change of shorter days and darkness coming earlier, there is still much light to appreciate. The sun shines bright through my windows each morning and the moon seems to shine brighter on the crisp, clear nights.
So let the chill in the air and the light of a new day give you a new beginning and an energized spirit to take you into the season. Pull out the fleece jacket, open the windows and let the fresh, cool air in. Breathe. Relax. Make that pot of soup. Put your boots on and let your creative energy flow to that next level, whatever that may be.
