What I find most lovely is that the Cosmos is the flower appointed to the month of October. In Greek it is the word used for harmony, balance and order; from the Latin, Kosmos, for beauty. The flower finds its origins in Latin America and when grown in Mexico by Spanish priests they named the lovely bloom Cosmos, because "they exuded cosmic beauty".
This is where I am today in my mind/body/spirit; feeling the soft, quietude of beauty, balance and harmony in all of life and in me. I bow in gratitude. _/|\_

The sea replied, "The language of eternal questions."
I saw the sky and asked, "What holds the answer?"
The sky replied, "The language of eternal silence".

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who
violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame,
the malice, meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

Sometimes nature simply hands it to you. I'm walking Lucy, I look down and there it is. I have Lucy sit, I kneel down, take a few deep breaths...the compliment of contrast. That's my life these days; deeply wanting balance between my personal life and the work life.
Somethings' gotta give.

"Certain springs are tapped only when we are alone. The artist knows he must be alone to create; the writer, to work out his thoughts; the musician to compose, the saint to pray. But women need solitude in order to find again the true essence of themselves...the problem is more how to still the soul in the midst of activities. In fact the problem is how to feed the soul". ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The wind is shifting bringing in cooler weather. Is it time to turn the heat on in the morning to cut the coolness? Time to rearrange the clothes in the drawers; turtlenecks move up to the top!
The earth tilts, the mind moves, the heart shifts...a beat.
