After a long day of hiking, enjoying the long weekend so many thoughts and ideas swirling. Back to my blog, to a beautiful creative space to unleash a splash of my energy into the world.
August is now just water under the bridge. September is here and looking marvelous. Another month, another school year, and we are on the cusp of a new season. The sun rises a little later in the morning and I'm seeing more of the early morning color over the treetops from our porch. On my commute to work, the traffic pattern has changed as the yellow school buses have returned once again. The sunlight is fading earlier too and it means making the most of the light, particularly after work. The days are warm and sunny and the evenings are cool.
I'm not sure what it is about the being in the in-between of seasons, yet I really like it. I think it is knowing change is coming. A reminder to soak up every moment of what it here because a shift has begun.
There is also something about September. The time when kids, big and small, return to school. I used to get so excited in anticipation for a new school year. Yes, I was one of those kids who loved school, well the idea of going to school to learn and create new things part of the experience at least. New clothes, a haircut, and all the fresh notebook paper, pens, and school books. I still find my way to a store and buy a supply or two each year. I love the basic composition notebooks and its a great time to stock up. And yes, new purple pens for writing, and pencils too.
I find that it is also a great time to let go of all that does not serve me, stay steady with what works, and give a few new things a try. Oh, and to encourage me (and you) to keep asking the important questions and seek clarity, peace, and hope. Its the inquiry that matters, not the answers. Some answers we'll find, some we won't, others we'll find for a time then begin asking again.
