According to the Pagan calendar, we are officially in AUTUMN!!! Yay! Woohoo! Starting to see the first clumps of yellow leaves, evening air giving a hint of chill. The Earth reminds us to celebrate all we’ve got while we’ve got it with the growing awareness that all is temporary and therefore more precious.
Let’s sing and dance and pray about it.
