My friend Cate Kerr of Beyond the Fields We Know wrote a lovely piece on Autumn Equinox, posted on her blog this morning. I especially like what she says about this day being a threshold or liminal time, the border between summer and fall.
My friend Beth Owl's Daughter has a great post too, a bit witchier than Cate's. I'l like to let them both speak for me today, about this holy-day.
I marked the Day & Night of Balance (Dark Ascending) yesterday, by walking around a nearby lake and getting caught up on the gossip of the neighborhood: thimbleberries are long gone, blackberries are about all picked over, Doug fir cones are hanging low, dripping with fragrant sap.
