Google+ What I Made Today: Season's Web

Season's Web

These past couple days I've made myself comfortable at home after several days away in the woods on The Farm with friends and loved ones. For several years now we find ourselves gathering in spring, in high summer and again - now - at summer's close to celebrate the season of Harvest and share community by way of food, fire, kinship, story, craft, art, drumming, laughter, hay rides and more. And lots of love.

I've been home since sunday evening and now I'm weaving my daily routines back into place and doing my best to honor the exit of these final days of summer as I prepare for autumn's formal arrival. It's a challenge for me this year, to bid farewell to summer, for it feels as if much of summer was pulled out from under my feet. Even so, I look forward to the close of the high growing season, to preserving the last of the garden harvests, to moving indoors, cooking warming meals and settling in for the winter to follow.

There's still a couple of active months ahead of me, but for now I turn my attention to the autumn seeds, the spinning of the earth, the spinning of the seasons, and the webs I choose to weave from the spirals of harvest's bounty.

That's what I made today. Peace.

Thank you to Nici for the beautiful harvest slideshow presentation. She always puts together the sweetest presentations after our gatherings. :)

Nothing quite like a circle of friends meeting for ceremony and reverie.

Autumn is like weaving the web that binds us closer to the earth and yet there is still that watery journey that needs to unfold...

May the last days of summer be fruitful for you

What a beautiful way to usher in the Autumn. I love coming to your blog because I do find peace there in your garden and words.

Autumn is upon us and you spin a calming tale with your words, sharing what you have been doing and how you are feeling. The sun is out today, the first time in what feels like weeks. Wishing you a lovely Mabon~
