Autumn is over the long leaves that love us,
And over the mice in the barley sheaves;
Yellow the leaves of the rowan above us,
And yellow the wet wild-strawberry leaves.
The hour of the waning of love has beset us,
And weary and worn are our sad souls now;
Let us part, ere the season of passion forget us,
With a kiss and a tear on thy drooping brow.
After the beautiful autumnal colours, the leaves are now starting to fall. And this can mean only one thing: 'winter is coming' (or is already upon us..).
And as the landscape undergoes another change, shedding the old to leave space for the new, so should we embrace this new season to deeply look inside ourselves and see where we want to go, what we want to leave space for and what we should work on 'shedding'.
Visualise the new that you want, new you, new neighbourhood, new community hey even new planet! Write it down, draw it, or just imagine it! How will the new leaves look on the tree? How many old leaves should it let go of?
Whether is something spiritual or something material, I challenge all of you to think of some steps that you can take to kick-start those changes.
Rules of the game:
- It can be anything, from something entirely self-centered to something with an environmental end-goal
- These are NOT resolution. Let's leave those for the new year
- Changes have to be positive. No negativity,
- Keep it a secret or share it, up to you, but enjoy the process - don't feel it as an obligation in any way, but fill it with positivity and enjoyment.
