There is a delightful thrill to just feel it approaching... and when it does, it seems to renew one's spirit, simply by taking it in... with one deep breath. Make no mistake, this is when the magic happens!
The season with the magical aromas that permeate the senses, the crisp air, falling leaves... my ritual since i was a small child is freeing everything of myself, letting go of the past year,
and just spinning under the golden shower of delicately raining leaves as they dance all around me. This is my new year.
This is my awakening.
Thriving throughout the season, i find myself fully and genuinely my authentic self, of whom not anyone can hold back... not in an obnoxious way, but rather in a very giving and kind way, just celebrating the harvest, celebrating special gatherings with friends, making cider, helping others who are less fortunate, and generally empowered by an overall energy unlike is possible any other time of year.
