Roots!! I just love this time of year. The changing colors, the crisp air, the hint of fermenting apples as you drive down the road. And it's the time to gather roots for medicine as the aerial parts start to die and the energy goes back into the roots.
I love our adventure days with my family. We live in the Midcoast Maine area and there are so many wonderful things to do, see, and eat within a short distance - perfect for a daytime jaunt. Working from home, we find the need to sometimes get out, see a different landscape, eat different things, and see people. We find that it allows for a wonderful energy reset and new inspiration to flow in.
This is a topic that I've been pondering since the time when I was pregnant with my Wilder, who is now 4.5 years old. After he was born, I wasn't totally sure if I wanted to have another child or not, but I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't do it again if I was experiencing stress and anxiety in my day to day life.
I found myself wide awake, ready for the day this morning, yet it was 4:30 am. The dark sky peaked in through my windows but I was able to tell that it was still snowing, alas that's just the general thing happening on the daily. Rather than frown or spend time complaining about the cold weather and instances snow storms, I have found myself embracing each winter more so than the last one. With ample amounts of darkness in the day, it feels like a perfect time to be productive, start and work on new projects, learn new trades or crafts, and lots of cuddles.
Music is something that pulses through us, and touches us all uniquely. We’ve all had those moments of getting lost in a song, beautiful music bringing a tear, listening to music while we drive - not just had them, but even daily - feeling like a song respresents our personal life’s movie soundtrack.
