As autumn comes to a close, we move to the next episode in our flexible, snow seeking life-style. With only days to go until winter is upon us, there is no snow yet. The lingering golden hues of autumn and the icy bite of the wind hint at the changes to come as we settle into our Australian winter home.

Interrupted posting
There are sometimes hiccups in the transition and this has affected my blog posts this week. I will return to my routine next week, with posts already in the pipeline.

Enjoy your last days of autumn or spring (depending on where you are in the world), and embrace the changes the new season brings. Have a great weekend!

Reality changes shape and meaning because of our activity.
And it is constantly new.
We are required to be there, as active participants. It can’t happen without us and nobody can do it for us.
~ Margaret Wheatley
