A Blaze of Colour

The trees have been showing me just how beautiful letting go can be. Look at them. They are leaving the sweetness of summer and entering a time of dormancy, how do they express that…in a blaze of colour! What is it that you need to let go of? Look to the trees for inspiration.

Season of Change

Yesterday was the Autumn Equinox. It occurred the moment the Sun crossed the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from north to south. On any other day of the year, the Earth’s axis tilts a little away from or towards the Sun. But on the equinox, the […]

One morning this week I awoke to frost on my window. I imagined it must be bitterly cold outside and my attention turned toward the hot cup of tea I was holding in my hands. We live in a world of contrasts. • Messy and clean • Dark and light • Happy and sad • […]
