November MoonPosted: 11/09/2011
In recent days, the wave of fall color has crested. The leaves — once awash in brilliant warm tones — are paling to subtler hues. And their languid, beautiful dance to the earth has begun. Yesterday on our walk, B and I stood entranced by the falling leaves, loosened from their branches by a gentle breeze, fluttering to the ground in drifts of gold. Fall is called fall for good reason.
Mother Nature and all her creatures — ourselves included! — are settling in for the crisp, cold months ahead. Wrapping up the harvest, laying in for winter. Taking stock, making note. Turning inward, breathing deep. Readying our hearts and our homes for the season about to unfold. It is a glorious one, if we are prepared for it!
Tonight is the eve of the November full moon. In the late afternoon, don a favorite sweater, step outdoors into the autumn dusk, look for its glow above the russet treetops! Happy full moon, everyone!
