Welcome, Autumn!

Today is the day to celebrate the autumnal equinox [at least in the northern hemisphere]. With nearly equal parts light and dark, it symbolizes a balance in the world that is often lacking. It is a time to be grateful for the abundance of light in the summer and to look forward to the quiet introspection of the fall.

Autumn has always been my favorite season. I enjoy taking the time to enjoy the diminishing light, the colors of trees and flowers as they prepare for winter. I like the slowing pace and the milder temperatures. For me the season invites reflection on the frenetic activities of spring and summer.

Take some time today, or make some, to find that balance in yourself. Use this day as a transition day, with one foot in each season, before moving to your fall mindset.
