This has always been my favorite time of year, and now that I’m in the Pacific Northwest (as I’m learning to call it), the magic seems just a little bit richer, a little more tangible.
Leaves are changing,
the air is getting sharp,
the squirrels scurry with urgency.
My nose is most often cold now,
but I get to wear cozy clothes
snuggle deeply into blankets
and drink lots of tea.
But for me, the autumn is about even more than the beauty that surrounds me.
Maybe it’s those squirrels, but there is an energy this time of year that feeds creativity.
It’s an energy of getting ready. It’s about being in this moment, yet also preparing for what comes next.
I’m guessing you feel it too.
And to me, it’s a message. A message about paying attention to what’s going on around me, as well as what’s going on in my mind.
Being aware. And as we get ready for our next big thing, remembering to enjoy the little things along way too.
To see the beauty around us.
To design peaceful moments.
To get ready.
To live life fully.
