The spectacular Harvest Moon on Friday September 16 majestically heralds the coming of the Fall Equinox. Reaping the fruits of our labor begins in earnest. Storing and preparing for the coming winter can consume these precious moments. It is important to pause and relish the beauty of the season.
In the garden, leaves have been yellowing on my beans for two weeks now, surrendering to the change of seasons. Cold, crisp mornings melt into afternoon warmth.
As heaven and earth mark this autumnal shift, I invite you to mark it also. Celebrate the harvest and the beginning transition to the Solstice. Bask in the last rays of summer; reflect on the passing of time; honor your part in the wheel of life.
