October Light

Seeing the light as it slips through the falling leaves, showing more and more light as the trees become bare, the sparkle of twilight as the sun shifts in the sky, giving us more night to cozy up in.

As you move back into the darker part of this year, I hope you find ways to reclaim your peace. Small gems that when strung together over time, remind you of the sweetness in your life. I look forward to hearing your tales of how you keep your gems for future viewing and reminiscing.

I thought I would share a bit about what is happening around here. Have a peek into my days.

What I am…


  • The Whole Brain, by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D. - I really like the scientific view that she brought to her experience of having a stroke, and how it changed the way she looks at her thought processes.

Listening to

Working on

  • I have been playing in Canva - I am sure that you have seen some of my creations, but I also am learning more about how to create digital downloads for Lilly’s Etsy store EmeraldCityCanada - watch to see what I have come up with.

Thinking about

  • Ways to incorporate my spiritual life into daily practice, I am working towards creating time to have a small daily ritual that helps me feel more grounded in my life and soul.

Looking forward to

  • Seeing all of the fun Halloween Costumes that parade our streets

October blessings

Watching leaves fall to the earth

Makes my spirit sing
