On the heels of a year's close-out, January follows to embrace a fresh path to approach another year of living. How then to harness the universe's energetic push to dissolve the old and tired and invigorate our vision forward?
Holidays can bring out the best - or worst in us. Amid commercials depicting cheery families dressed in matching pajamas, there is often a quiet melancholy that drifts into our psyches. We mix fantasy, memories, guilt and mild skepticism into a seasonal beverage that we consume in large quantities. Take extra loving measures such as moving the body, relaxing the mind and planting light into the heart.
Before long we’ll be running through store aisles and cruising online past midnight for "perfect gifts" for loved ones. The season of giving has been replaced by the season of spending. Retailers will do whatever it takes to get their hungry hands on our open wallets.
What if we had the chance to open a different kind of store?
The world turns inward in the fall and there's no shortage of inspiration for writers. Colorful leaves float to the ground. The crisp air begs for our attention. Quiet settles into the air and gives us time for rest.
Let’s take these bite-size quotes and help them flourish in your fall harvest.

As we fall into Fall, it's timely to inventory our inner resources. Nature sheds her Summer coat, invigorating us for another round of metamorphoses. We begin to crave renewal - yet recognize a slower rhythm is calling us forward.
Isn't it time we seek all that stimulates and nurtures us and walk away from what distracts and distresses us? Kindness feeds our spirits and inspires humanity to grow in bright ways.
