Autumn Stepping StonesAutumnal Equinox 2006

The Autumnal Equinox is Friday, September 22 (9:03pm Pacific Time). Day and night are equal. Imagine a pendulum has swung as far as it can to one side. Then there is just the slightest pause or hesitation before it swings back the other direction. This pause is similar to the pause of energy evident at the equinox. It is a time of balance.

We can acknowledging the blessings of the bounty of our gardens, our lives, and our personal growth.
