Well, I flat out missed it. The Autumn Equinox was Sept. 20th, and there was no mention of it here.
It was on my mind in fleeting moments, and in fact, fall is my favorite season, but my life is at capacity, and I'm struggling to balance it all. I'm hardly managing with panache, but I think I'm hanging in there. I spent the 20th and 21st with friends, sharing games, good food and conversation, so perhaps that was its own celebration.
This post is up, however, because The Boyfriend - who just patiently listened to me download (read: vent... read: rant) about some of the things I'm dealing with right now - sent me an Autumn Equinox card from Blue Mountain Arts to support my new Blogher Ads. So here's what Blue Mountain Arts has to say about the Autumn Equinox:
Autumn Equinox - Mabon - September 22 Today is the official beginning of autumn. The air is crisp, the foliage is spectacular, there is a nip in the air. Summer is over, and Winter is quickly approaching. Autumn is the second time of balance in the year, when day and night are of equal length. It is a time to celebrate the harvest and to store our abundance for the coming cold but cozy months of winter. Animals are busy preparing for winter hibernation. Everywhere, there is great energy in the air. From this point on, we celebrate the oncoming season of shorter days and longer nights.
May it find your seasons turning to delightfully crispy fall delights.
