    For those of you who were at the Autumnal Equinox Ritual and Drum Circle Friday night: I planted your harvest leaves at exactly 3:44 pm today, the precise time of the Equinox in our area. I have added a series of pictures that capture today's ceremony. They show the hole prepared with a bed of gladiola petals; then your harvest leaves on top of the petals; then the altar cloth holding space until the exact time of burial; then more gladiola leaves on top of your harvest; then the covered hole. I spoke the blessing over the harvest again before covering the hole with soil. It felt beautiful! They now rest beneath a Cleveland Pear Tree that was planted in our yard a year ago, where they will be held and loved in gratitude. Thank you for all you gift to the world... Namaste'

    The activity was great. A great environment, great people and friends and awesome energy. I love to attend this kind of community events to see people I don't get the chance to see often and to enjoy the community of lovely friends.

    A wonderful gathering last night at Open Lotus Studio to begin ushering in the Autumnal Equinox! And the coolness of this day after is amazing :) It was so sweet to share the ceremony with you all last night. I will gather up the Harvest and bury it in my garden on Sunday afternoon in line with the "official" equinox. Wished I had been able to join the drumming and stay for some raffle prizes; it was all quite fabulous!

    Good food, good friends, good vibrations. Gatherings like this generate positive community interactions. My children and I had fun! Thank you Ceci for leading us in an important Equinox Ceremony. It's nice to have a reminder to pause and be grateful for the harvest.

    I began an evening shift at work, so may be less than an hour late. To make up I'll bring extra percussion toys...
