The time will come to bloom

Leaves bathing in Gold
As the sun is high in the sky
From my window

I treasure the sight
As my days are passing by

Slow motion of emotions
In the working place
Nothing here makes sense

When outside the world
Is waiting for me
To bloom, and shine, and be

Autumn is coming…

Summer is gone. We could not bear it anymore – too hot. We were looking for fresh air everywhere. Kids grew cranky and grow-ups tired, in the blazing heat of early September.

I look outside, it’s pouring rain. It feels so good – a relief. It smells like a sweet pie just out of the oven, ready to be savored. My whole body shivers – pure pleasure. It’s a blessing after these busy days. And the beginning of a new season too.

Autumn is my favorite. I like everything about it, its sounds, its colors, its warmth, the pleasure we get to be inside and enjoy the comfort of our own homes, that we tend to let down when the sun is high is the sky. I love being able to spend hours in the kitchen, playing with new recipes or just relax on the couch in front of a good movie. I love entire days reading books and building sacred spaces with a couple of chairs and a blanket, cuddling on cushions and playing games all together. I enjoy a lot being inside, dressed in one of my must-loved home-wear clothes; let the window open and the cold air of outside caressing the skin of my face with gentleness. I love testing new teas and hot-chocolates, baking scones or making jam. And meeting friends in our favorite coffee-shop, looking at Paris getting ready for the year-end festivities.

I love scarves, boots and comfy coats, gloves and the touch of wool. Walking in nature and staring gracefully at the leaves falling down, changing colors, at the naked trees standing still.

Autumn. A time to breath and relax, to relax and let go, to let go and take care of ourselves, to take care of others and forgive ourselves, to forgive and move on, to move on and enjoy each second of the present, to enjoy life and remember that today is perfect and that we too are perfect, in the eyes of Creator. Nothing else should matter.

Autumn. A time to shine inside…

Taste of spring

The sun is back. And we enjoyed a beautiful weekend.

Spring comes with a special atmosphere. The days are longer and the smell in the air is fresh and sweet. The wind doesn’t carry cold anymore.

While walking in the streets with Mister Pop, I came to realized that I am a girl of mid-seasons. I like all seasons, as each one prepares us for the next one. When we accept nature cycle, we can see the benefits for our lives too.

But the seasons I prefer are autumn and spring. I feel refreshed. I feel every one of my dreams is possible. These seasons bring the best out of me. I feel connected to Mother Earth. I am more grateful or able to see the bigger picture.

With winter come the cold days. And my only way to get through them is to create a cosy home, to stay inside, under blankets, with comfy clothes and spiced tea, to read and find ideas to be crafty behind closed doors.

With summer come the warm or hot days. I like to stay in the shade, wear long skirts, swim, cycle and dance. I enjoy long walks when the sun is about to go to sleep and I laugh at baby steps on the grass or in the sand.

Each season is special.

All is done beautifully. The perfection of the natural process is something to be grateful for. If we can rejoice in the peace that each season is offering us, we can fully embrace the purpose of our life and blossom.

What is your favorite season or what do you feel when spring comes?
