Preparing for Winter
We then sow the seeds of those changes in our dreams, plans and other forms of preperation to try to make them occur. Before the years of artificial lighting, these are the months that we would spend more time in our caves, dens, huts or log houses. Perhaps spending more time with our loved ones and neighbours, re-enforcing those connections based on love and trust, making changes to our dens or creating things of beauty, tangible or oral within the cocoon of darkness. Ever wonder why a real fire in the dark feels secure, warm and comforting in the winter days?
So think about your journey and dream good dreams and do the other things that you want to do. Spend more time with loved ones and make those bonds stronger.
Sew those seeds for next spring...that's when we start making them a reality.
