The full moon that is closest to the autumnal equinox is a time for thanksgiving and sharing. This moon is also known as the harvest moon. This time of year we see the glory of the changing of the leaves and it is a true blessing that the days get cooler and the air gets crisper.
Henry David Thoreau said it well---
Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of the earth.
I was reminded again today to "enjoy the little things". Go out and gather some changing leaves and frame them, pick up some acorns and seedpods to put in a bowl, make a cairn/or oobos of stones, take some pictures of your hometown area, catch some rainwater and wash you hair in it, catch some fireflies, plant a tree, pick some wildflowers/grasses, take a walk, go for a bike ride, hold hands with your husband, plant some herbs, find a labyrinth and walk the journey, go to the beach and pick up shells/stones, make some paper beads, go watch the ducks, listen to music, paint a picture, write a letter(or make a fabric postcard) to someone you haven't talked to in a long time, go to an art gallery, hold a baby, make cookies, smile, love, laugh out loud, have fun...etc.etc.
Leave a comment and let me know the "little things you enjoy" doing.
