"Notice that autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature."
— Friedrich Nietzsche
It is happening before our eyes.
Each day is a bit shorter, each dawn a bit slower to appear. We can feel the shift in the breeze and in our bodies. This fall, which in some ways is vastly different than those of the past due to the Covid 19 pandemic, is a time of preparation and busyness.
Such is the energy of autumn, when we harvest plants and gather together with friends and family. Annual community events, from local festivities to fairs, are either non-existent or look quite different this year. This is making it hard on us, because we like to gather together!
But of course, we can't. Not this year. I wonder, though, what would happen if we decided to get creative, really creative, and find ways to still connect and get together with others. What might this look like for you?
Harvesting memories is the work of fall, and when we get together (even while wearing a mask and maintaining social distancing) we heal, body, mind, and spirit! And after all, isn't that what living is all about?
