can you feel it?
the great wheel is slowly shifting
i have been feeling it for a couple of weeks now, but more so over the last few days, despite the blazing hot sun we are still having here in my part of the northern hemisphere.
it is like a deep thrumming of a great drum in the earth that is vibrating up into my body and into my very soul
i can feel everything starting to withdraw into the earth~in the garden, although we still have flowers and my black cherry tomatoes are only just turning dark~there is a withdraw that is very strong...too strong to ignore.
to many people august is the hight of summer, but lughnasadh/lammas is the first harvest and it is a time when things start to slow down and my thoughts start to turn inwards.
a time to think over what the year, so far has brought, to reap personal rewards with thanks and think on what will be reflected upon during the dark days that are to come.
i look forward to the dark days, although we need both light and dark, i feel connected to the darker times. it feels comfortable and i feel more alive and creative.
everywhere i am feeling an increased stillness that no everyone can feel...can you?
