With the onset of Winter, it is time to adjust to the changing season. The nights are longer, birds have migrated, animals go into hibernation and there is a chill in the air. It is a time of death and then the time of rebirth at the Winter Solstice, when the light returns and the day's gradually lengthen again.
I love this time of year. A time for enjoying nourishing homemade soups and baked goods, getting out and about and being at one with nature, having good books to curl up with, indulging in creative pursuits, sitting by candlelight and giving oneself permission to rest and regenerate.
A mystical energy pervades the air. Life holds so many possibilities. This is the time to wrap myself in an imaginary cocoon and emerge like a butterfly the following Spring.
