A reading from my latest book, “Walking Between Worlds”…

The days of long shadows are with us once more. Evening descends more quickly, as the light disappears into the western skies. We have passed the equinox and are on the descent towards Samhain, the time of thin edges, where time itself loses meaning and relevance as the great change occurs and the Celtic year begins afresh.
Light is celebrated in the dying days as the journey towards Yule begins.
As the Earth prepares for Winter, closing down into itself, the scents of mushrooms and decay linger in the woodland around the cottage.
Jack and I enjoy the day that’s in it as we walk in the greater woodland nearby…this is Dereen Woods where we love to roam! This is the time when we truly appreciate the light, making the most of the hours that are illuminated.
Venus de Milo welcomes visitors to the Goddess Gardens, now thickly wooded and rich with life. A red squirrel recently took up residence, followed by another…then another today! Word is spreading that there is a sanctuary for life where all are protected…and welcomed!
Soon the leaves will fall and the light will find new pathways each day as the sun rises lower and lower until the three days of stillness over Solstice.
Blessings to you all X
