Happy Autumn Equinox

A farmer friend of mine once shared her theory that humans–farmer or not–feel an urgency around the summer solstice that corresponds to the rhythm of the earth to get the crops planted in the ground, and then again at the autumn equinox to gather the harvest before the fall.

Everyone I talk to lately feels harried and overscheduled, and I am no exception. I’m hoping that this means we are simply creatures of the earth, and once the equinox passes, and our harvests (physical or metaphorical) are in, things will feel less hectic.
