Winter starts in our house on October 1st. I changed the curtains from sheers to damask with lining. I changed the rugs from straw or cotton to wool. I moved all the deck furniture and plants that enjoyed summer sun and waning autumn days without a frost to indoors to make it to another spring.
It is sad to see the end of the barefoot days of summer, and to with regret put the shorts and tank tops back in their plastic liners along with the flip-flops and open-toed heels.
Red moves to burgundy, lime green to dark forest green. Such are the colors of nature, and so we take our cues.
The moon at night has been fantastic. HUGE harvest moonlight. The sort of which I used to love to watch on my ride home after showing properties.
This will be the winter that makes or breaks me. But, I have every confidence that this will be the point of honor that I shall overcome. Wish me well, please.
The moon has many renewing properties guiding the tides and pulling on the earth.... I think it will pull the best out of me...and you.
