First of all, I want to wish you all a happy Mabon, or Autumn Equinox!
I love autumn, it’s such a wonderful time, perfectly balanced between light and darkness, warmth and cold, summer and winter, life and death.The air is so fresh and crisp, and it’s neither too warm, nor too hot to be outside. It’s the perfect time to enjoy long walks outside, not to mention that the fruits and vegetables taste delicious!
I’m at home, so I didn’t get to exactly celebrate Mabon this year, no rituals, but that doesn’t mean I’m not appreciating the balance every time I step out the door, something which I think is just as important.
I have several small cousins, two of them, girls, are about 1 years old. I’ve seen them a lot this weekend, and I have to say, I just adore those little girls. There is nothing like the company of children to brighten your mood. It’s just impossible to not smile when they flirt with you, or throw their chubby little arms around your neck in a warm, sweet hug. They’re so honest and genuine, if they love you, you’ll feel it. It’s the best therapy in the world.
Now, I’m going to cut this post short to enjoy both of the things I’ve been talking about, and then some. A good friend, a little beam of sunshine, and a walk outside in this wonderful weather. What more can you ask for?
Enjoy the remains of your weekend, and if you have the opportunity, take a walk, and play with a child.
