As summer comes to a close and the Autumn Equinox draws near I wanted to post my thoughts on the coming season. Fall is a time for reflection. As the air turns crisp and the rain moves in, soon the trees will begin to shed their leaves and release branches that are no longer needed. Like the trees, sometimes we shed our own leaves and branches to make room for new growth... While watching the leaves turn gold and fall like rain, take time to reflect upon the changes that have occurred in your life over the past year....maybe something that was once ever-present is no longer there...maybe someone that you love is moving on to their winter.... As I reflect on fall, I think that it is harder to let go than it is to simply live without. Letting go is a process wrought with thoughts and feelings of what might have been and the painful thought of being without. It is a mourning process... I have found that loss only exists in the physical realm. Our connections transcend time and space. While learning to let go remember the richness of the memories made here in the physical and embrace the season with its crisp air, bringing us back now to the present moment...watching as the golden leaves fall down like rain....how spectacular!
