I love the last four months of the year...well actually, I love it from the point of my anniversary/birthday in late August, through the change of the leaves in Fall all the way to the end of the year. The older I get the more I seem to love it.
Now you may wonder why this time of year? Why not pick Spring, Summer, or perhaps, those cold months of January, February and March? There is, really, nothing wrong with any of these times of year. Winter is a time of hibernation for me, Spring is sowing and rebirth and Summer is for growth. Fall for me is the time for harvest. Preparing the bounty we've planted in the Spring, cultivated all Summer, and then stocking it up for those long, cold months of Winter.
I also use these last months of the year to share with family and friends. To give of oneself, without thought of anything in return, is one of the greatest things to help fill up the coufers of my soul to sustain me thru my winter hibernation. It fills me with hope and joy and peace. My rest period is nothing short of tranquil.
So my friends, welcome to my Time of the Season. I am busily harvesting and preparing the bounty. I hope you are doing well and that you are enjoying your own harvest. It's a beautiful time of the year.
