Today’s Autumnal Equinox also happens to “fall” on a full moon…auspicious indeed and ready for all sorts of bad puns on my part! This equinox leads us into the darkness of fall. It’s a time of harvest, reaping our rewards and recognizing the inward change manifesting in the changing of the season and trees (not that that actually happens a lot in SF). Reap the past seeds and also sow for the future. A time for letting go of shedding skin and the old things that no longer serve us. Yesterday when I was teaching yoga I couldn’t help but continue with the dorky changing references by doing butterfly pose, focusing on cobra pose, and of course the autumn classic – tree pose.
Today I’m grateful for fall, yoga, and cute boys who work in the cafe at school.
