Happy Equinox

Today is the Autumnal equinox. It’s officially Fall. Equinox literally means “equal night”, and from here on out the nights will grow longer as we head towards winter.

September is a month of changes, we’ve had our summer fun, the night’s grow cooler and it’s almost time to bid farewell to the warm weather.

It’s also the time of year where I often find myself reflecting over what I have gathered and seeded over the past months. I take stock of what the seasons have yielded so far, the hopes and dreams which were sown in the beginning of the year.

What have I harvested?

What wisdom have I garnered so far this year?

I also ask myself what lies fallow, uncultivated? However, I recognize that sometimes dreams need a period of  incubation in order to come to fruition, and remind myself that all fields must lie fallow for a season or they become infertile, a wasteland.

Today I am thankful for all the blessings in my life, including family and friends.
