I have been on vacation this past week and have a few more days to go. It has been a time of deeply resting, reading, and visiting local art galleries. Outside, the weather has begun to be more cool, and still cooler weather is not far behind. Halloween decorations are up in the neighborhood and excited costumed children will be traveling through the neighborhood early Thursday evening ringing doorbells and calling out “trick or treat”. Inside me, I find that I am quiet and reflective, attentive to the changes in nature around me, appreciative of the creativity of artists and writers, feeling less tired, and very much at home.
