Blessings to my local farmers preparing to cut the fields, it's been unsettled and wet the past week or so-hopefully the past few dry days will give them their opportunity for harvest without worrying too much.
I'm sad to see my local Elder has been a casualty in a fire on the fields, one filled with broken booze bottles and rubbish that has also damaged a large Sycamore. Both are strong spirits and will survive but it's difficult to see their scars caused by the thoughtlessness of a few.
I'm feeling the thankfulness that comes with this time of year and making the most of every opportunity to get amongst it, but there is a shift in consciousness approaching with the coming of the darker days-as always. One of learning, experience and introspection.
The beginning of the year brought with it a new way of practical living in a material sense, and since then i've had opportunities to learn much about leadership in a professional sense which has been the start of another journey.
I feel however another path emerging on a spiritual level, where it will lead i have no idea, but it feels like a natural process, like an old memory returning in bits and pieces, or a dream remembered in fragments. Anyways, what will be will be. Onwards and upwards-or is that downwards? We shall see...
