Autumn Transition

thumb_IMG_1554_1024The leaves and grasses are changing color, while the flowers are fading away creating seeds for next year’s germination. As the days shorten, I gather what is left in the garden and wait for the second or third frost to collect my medicinal roots for winter. I rid my house of the clutter accumulated over the summer. I make my nest preparing for this transition and I notice the same is true of nature.

While reaching for my Peace Blend many times during this transition it puts a calming smile on Petebluesky2my face. It reminds me of Pete, my horse, who helped me create this blend during his transition from life. One of the many transitions we will all experience. We transition coming into this life, experience many transitions during our lifetime and eventually transition from life. Some call it “full circle” – I call it nature.

Enjoy this time, observe it, and reflect.
