We are at the halfway point between the Summer and Winter Solstice - The beginning of Autumn here in the northern hemisphere. Today we have 12 hours of daylight and 12 of darkness - A perfect celestial balance.
The harvest is winding down and the fields are becoming bare. The light is growing dimmer at the end of each day and those familiar evocative autumnal colours are taking over the landscape once again - The cycle continues.
Autumn seems to have appeared overnight, today there is crispness in the air, signifying that it is that time once again to withdraw with the final harvest, to burrow, hibernate and take stock. Nourishing ourselves with all that is wholesome - Resting and preparing for the dark months to come.
