This week I’ve been celebrating both the Jewish New Year and the coming of Fall, my favorite season.
Fall, especially in the New England sense of the word, is a time for both reflection and preparation. And with the Jewish New Years focus on atoning for the past year and preparing for another one, the timing couldn’t be more spot on.
As soon as the night temperatures drop to the 40′s and the days don’t rise above 70, a whole new mindset sets in. Fall, at once nostalgic and energetic is a welcome contrast from the hot, busy buzz of summer. Despite the looming darkness and cold, there is a welcome anticipation of a quieter, slower pace to settle and incubate all that was stirred up over the long summer days.
Over the next week I’ll be putting together an Ode to Summer video but in the meantime here are some of the things I’m loving right now.
