Recently, the subject of time and cycles bubbled up in various conversations and I was asked how I was feeling and how was my energy at this time of the year. For many, as the winter draws in, there is a corresponding feeling of drawing inwards, a period of reflection and renewal. Physiologically, some people feel more tired, more muted and less active. On the other hand, you may be different! You may be a bit more like me- simultaneously feeling some slowing down but at the same time, feeling inspired and moved by the movement of nature. I took the photo yesterday while walking in a local park and seeing the magnificent carpet of leaves giving themselves so freely to enrich the soil- was so moving. It stirred up a strong need in me to create and celebrate the richness of life and also provoked a question in me ‘how am I giving myself to the greater whole?’
