It is that time of year again. My beloved Spring and Summer have turned now to Fall. Two nights ago, we had our first frost – unexpected. The hummingbirds are gone wherever hummingbirds go during the cold – where is that place? The crickets now require water to stay alive, water in the warm light of day. Yellowjackets are struggling inside in a last, desperate attempt to survive. They are compassionately and carefully shooed back outside, with every effort made to help them keep their limbs and wings intact.
Around now, I start thinking about next year, about resolutions, about goals. Where will I be this time next year? My lease will have expired. My daughter will be in high school. I don’t even know what to think about money. It occurs to me that I need a plan. And I need a dream picture. I have been reading much about creating your own reality over the past year or so, and I figure it can’t hurt anything…to paint the dream in my head, shape it, and make it real. The universe works in strange, powerful and mysterious ways.
Perhaps it is time for a true change of seasons.
