Sitting on my front porch in the waning light of the day, I was struck by how the light illuminated our small, lacy cut-leaf maple. I’ve been thinking about the seasons and how aspects of our lives mimic the cyclical seasons. What season are you in, right now, in your life? Personal or professional. Are you in the deep richness and fullness that is summer? Or the crisp maturity and wisdom that is Autumn? Perhaps the dormant, sleepy, death of winter or the fertile potential of spring with its myriad of opportunities and seeds of possibility. Whatever season is it, be grateful, for each is necessary, and each leads on to the next phase. It’s how we continuously transform ourselves.
