We’ve had a few days of beautifully mild and sunny weather over the Autumn Equinox weekend and so I decided not to have my traditional potluck but something a little lighter – brown and wild rice with leafy spinach, organic canned tomatoes, mushrooms, and a bit of grated cheese. It was delicious.
I hope you had a beautiful Equinox!
In the meantime, it’s become truly autumn. It’s foggy and grey, and I feel the urge to spend my evenings reading or gaming wrapped in a woollen blanket and drinking tea or a glass of red wine (both warming!). The moon is waning too, and I don’t really feel like going out, so I’ve been spending my time on the new Tribal Community which is well on its way by now! People are still a little shy to post, but most of them have arrived in the forum and some have introduced themselves. I’m hoping for many new conversations there soon!
The next step will be enrolling everyone into the workgroups or e-course groups they’d like to join. Impatient hag that I am, I can’t wait for the messages to pour in, but I’m reminding myself that people also have other things to do (unbelievable!) and that it’ll take a few more days. What a lovely little lesson for me there.
Of course what all this means is that this is the perfect time to join if you haven’t already! This community is shaping up to be amazing. The people who’ve joined so far are beautiful, wise individuals, and just imagining what synergy they’ll create when they all start sharing and learning together, gives me shivers (the good kind). If you want to be part of this amazing synergy, sign up here!
What else is going on? I’m stuck in the last week of the business year at work so I’m still very busy, protecting my sleep, and taking it easy otherwise. For Saturday I’ve booked a massage and a hair cut, and I’ll go to the Bray Pagan Moot to nourish my soul – which is very very important these days in order to keep in balance.
Balance. It’s the theme of this time of the year. Day and night, the warm and the cold season. Can you feel it? If you can’t, then now is a perfect time to introduce more balance to your life. The universe will make it easy for you, reflecting on the outside what’s going on inside of you. Hmmm… this might be the time to dig out last year’s project of creating a series of guided meditations. I gave up on the project for a while, but I still have the first drafts. It was meant to be a journey to balance, recognition, and love, a while life journey really in the form of metaphorical wanderings. Maybe that would be something for the Tribal Community?
