As summer moves into fall our bodies and our beings go through different changes as well. As a little inspiration and support for this transition I’d like to offer a month of posts.
Maybe you are looking back on relaxing vacation or a summer with a very busy schedule. Maybe the autumn is your favorite season or you’d prefer this summer to stay much longer. No matter what our story, we have all shared the experience of this summer. And we also share this moment, and this, and this.
Depending on the needs of the moment, we might sit down at home and reflect and write. Or we might go for a fun little hike with friends, or walk alone in the forest …
Listening to what’s going on inside and around us, we can rediscover our depth and a more authentic response to events.
Listening is like a channel I tune into. It helps me to be in the moment, to find a sense of calm and a feeling of being at home no matter where I am.
Especially in the fall, the evening can become a time for comfort and simplicity. It gets darker earlier and we might like to wear warm socks and maybe light candles and spend the hours after sunset with good friends or nice music at home.
For me these times are often better with a nourishing cup of hot tea …
When we feel at home, comforted, and nourished, it’s so much easier to find stillness and the deep rest that follows it.
Have a good week!
P.S: By the way, the inspiration for pairing words and pictures comes from #BreatheSeptember2016. I’m enjoying it!
