The Beauty of Shifting

I celebrate Fall.

I celebrate the shedding of the old to go to a place of quietude and surrender to the coming winter of stillness, hibernation and muse.

I celebrate the cycles of the year and this particular one of rich gestation and shifting.

Deep gratitude to the sun, sky, water, and earth for blessing me with these changes and shedding and transitions. Deep gratitude to Earth Mother for her love and support, unwavering as I fumble around in my fears.

blessings… blessings…

    This is the most feminine time of the year with the days getting shorter (since June) and the nights being longer than the days (since September), Yes “gestation”! Our bodies don’t want to be at some shopping mall parking lot at 7 PM fighting for a parking space. They want to be in front of roaring fire with family, or maybe just a dog or cat, who understands that this is a time to begin to regroup for the return of the Sun or the Son with the Winter Solstice as celebrated in its many forms.

    Great post today thanks. I really enjoyed reading it very much. You have an excellent blog here.

  3. Yes, John,
    I agree totally… totally… and one of the wonderful aspects of this new home that I have is that there is a wood stove in the kitchen and it is great joy to be tending it, and write, and continue to cocoon even more… thanks for swinging by… ;~)
    – blessings, mare
