the rhythm of a simple home

I've been thinking about the coming Autumnal Equinox.
Intentionally, I seek the rhythm of the earth and its seasons.
My inner clock places summer's end as the final part of the year
and Autumn as the fresh start.
The end of the harvest season and the time for deliberate, inner reflection.
I tend to make any resolutions with the beginning of Autumn rather than the traditional New Year.
This year I have promised myself to eat healthier.
For me that means food that is fresh and mostly in-season.
Fresh fruits and vegetables, cheeses, nuts, seeds, legumes, and whole grains,
along with a splattering of fish and a bit of meat here and there.
I am bound and determined to stay away from white sugar, white flour and refined foods...

I have also begun to choose a theme for the season.
Summer was/is my season for adventure and Autumn will be my season for self-care.
Stolen sweets are always sweeter,
stolen kisses much completer,
stolen looks are nice in chapels,
stolen, stolen be your apples.
