The air gets cooler every morning now, and while it’s not officially autumn yet, the leaves in places on our cherry tree are turning a deep red. Being a fall baby, I always feel like I’m coming home as it turns cooler and the skies are gray. It’s a time to be honest with myself and others, a great time for reflection.
In a dream night before last, I was talking with my midwives about my new pregnancy. (Just in the dream was I pregnant, so no one needs to get concerned about me having 5 kids!) Of course I’ll be having “pregnant” dreams now; I’ve just started two new journeys — one the women’s spirituality group (which meets Wednesday nights) and the other a Servant Leadership course (which meets Monday nights). Also right now we’re having rehearsals for the play “Birth” by Karen Brody for our local BOLD events. The time is ripe for potentiality even though the light will be less and the earth will be retreating into slumber. It’s a good time to go inward.
For a reality check, where are you in your journey of life, of spirit, of health? It’s time to be open to new discoveries, to be aware of what Spirit might reveal. O, if only that could be how I live every day!
