Quietly Before It Begins…

Hello old friends. It has been some time since I have been here.  I have to say I have missed it in so many ways yet every time I had good intentions of coming by for a visit, it always seemed like something else pulled me in an opposite direction.  But then we all know what they say of good intentions.


When I looked out at this time last year, I thought what I saw was a coming year full of events and excitement.  It did evolve into just that yet the events and excitement were not of the manner that I had thought they would be.  I will say that there were many lessons to be learned.  A time it seemed to realize that there are many perspectives and interpretations to the world around me.  I would not be talking truthfully if I was to say that I was not glad that this year is drawing quickly to a close and a new one is about to begin. 

 

Not only has this time brought a wonderful release from the sweltering heat that came our way this summer it has also brought about a calmness and a form of rebirth.  Even mother nature seems to be experiencing this effect.  Flowers that labored under the heat of summer and held back much of their blooms are now unfolding in vibrant colors and number.  It is as if they are trying to make up for the lost time they had stolen from them by father sun. 

 

Over the weekend we received a wonderful drenching of moisture from the sky.  It brought with it a revival of growth and blooms.  The shorter days as well as the moisture have given cooler days and relaxing moments, something I have missed terribly.


I hope that likewise all of you have been able to experience such a time yourselves.  A few moments to gather ones self and prepare for the quietness that the coming months will soon bring.  I have no doubt that with it we will have our own surprises, much like this last year brought.  Yet I hope that it will give us times to reflect and once again prepare ourselves. 


The year draws down to its final days and soon the time of Samhain will be upon us.  It is a special time for many.   I look forward to all the aspects that it will bring with it.  I look forward to putting this year to the past and making way for the new one to come.


Blessings to you and yours,

M other Moon

You know I am with you on the challenges this year has posed for many of us. In fact everytime I went to e-mail you the exact same thing seemed to occur. I am so glad to have you visit and I also look forward to a calm to enjoy the friendship we have. Much love and blessings to you and all of yours.

Hello Mother Moon. It is wonderful to see your post. I have stopped by many times and have been wondering about you.
You are not alone in wanting a new year to begin. Many of us have dealt with things this year that we would like to put in the past. Many prayers have gone out to those in need of help for ills of many kinds. It was a dreadful, hot summer for just about everyone and I am sure looking forward to the coolness and beauty of Fall and Winter.
So glad you are back. Sending a big hug to you with wishes for a joy filled Fall Season.

Ahhhh Dear Sister...so good to hear your voice once more...yes, this has been a year of extremems to be sure but I so feel all of them to be necessary for our ongoing evolution, don't you?

This night it is quietly raining here and the temps will soon be falling...I'm wrapping things up soon outside and awaiting the Brrr months to come with anticipation, as I love winter.

Samhain was really on my mind today and it is time I think to start building my Ancestor Altar.

Hope the world and universe are being kind and compassionate with you and yours...you are never far away from my thoughts.

I too have been quiet on blogger...I have been doing some introspection...seems to be the theme for my year. :) It's all good though!

Many Radiant Blessings and a Very Happy Samhain Dear Lady!!!

Yes - a challenging year, for sure. I'm glad too, that it's quickly coming to a close. I have a good feeling about this coming year. New ideas, a fresh perspective.

Happy to hear your 'voice' again, Dearest! A lovely Autumn to you!

I am delighted that you checked in. I haven't been here in blogland as much as I should have, but I have experienced a period of change that has been tumultuous - to say the least. I am hopeful that this fall season brings with it peace and beauty and quiet. :)
