Experiencing Late Summer

It is September 3rd and you may not know about this fabulous season we're in. We are in the season of Late Summer. This is the time of the greatest expression for the element of Earth. It's a fabulous time when you can begin to see the multitudes of fresh vegetables and fruits coming forth in your garden and at your local farmer's market. The options for cooking and feeding yourself, friends and loved ones are enormous. You can have green, yellow, red, and many colors represented in each meal that you serve. A dear friend of mine has created the most amazing website that will help you embrace the foods of the season. It is called Figs with Bri, by Briana. I hope you will take a moment to go discover how you can connect with all the beautiful fruits and vegetables that the plant people are offering.

How can you connect to the earth in you? You can experience a great harvest and prepare a meal with local and seasonal foods. You can find a way to nourish your mind and your spirit as well. What about doing something for yourself this week? A nice quiet bath, a relaxing massage, quiet time with a great book, giving yourself time to do that thing you've been putting off. Everyone has something that they could do for themselves, especially since we neglect this so often in our lives. So, this week, make the time for you. Nourish yourself and find what feeds you.
