Wishcasting Wednesday

What do you wish for fall?

If winter is slumber, spring is birth, and summer is life...
then autumn rounds out to be reflection.
It's a time of year when the leaves are down, 
the harvest is in
the perennials are gone.
Mother Earth 
just closed up the drapes on another year
it is time to reflect on what's come before.
~ Mitchell Burgess

I wish to...
A time to pause and harvest my own personal garden.
To see what seeds I have sown.
Did I produce a garden that reflects who and what I am...
or, did I allow the weeds to take over...

A season that tends to slow life down... a quiet time!
Time to breathe...
A time to surround myself with all that consumes me.
To take inventory...
to remove the unwanted and uselessness out! 

I wish...
To take in all that Mother Earth has to offer this Autumn.
To allow acceptance...
to be drawn inward so that I can reflect outward, in a creative matter.
To see life through the creative eye
become more inspired, always!

I am willfully wishing and willing...
to embrace fall
with all my heart!

Happy Autumn!
