As summer comes to a close and fall begins to emerge, it feels to me like a time to come inside and go inward. This can cause a touch of panic in me, when I wonder if my own company is something I need more of. It’s not that I don’t like myself, but summer tends to be extroverted and a time of coming together with friends and adventure. The approaching cold feels like an ominous overseer of more quiet and inside times.

I think the cure for this intrepidation I feel is remembering community. I like to think of all the communities that I am part of. These are the people that I can reach out to, join up with, play with, and celebrate times inside around a heat source. I still need the outdoors and it’s sun, scents, and its movement,…but remembering community makes the thought of colder months more appealing to me.

My sister loves winter. She is happy to see the summer go. I envy her. Here in Maine, there seems to be much more time for chill than warmth. But she loves the introverted processes of winter and the creative places she can bring forth from the days of darkness and cold.

I try to remember that balance in everything is a good protocol in life, and appreciate the gifts of each season as it comes. I have to say, however,…I will probably be drawing more from my various communities as the days grow shorter and the chill sets in. May you have community and warmth in the coming season!
