Fall is upon us and the autumn harvest makes us ponder…
How far have we come and how far we have to go? The Fall Equinox has made our days grow shorter. and we still have so much to do! Get that garlic in the ground. Get those rocks out of the ground. What are we going to do with all those rocks?!
Fortunately (for us) British artist and man-about-the-woods, Andy Goldsworthy, inspires us in every season but especially this one with the vibrant yellows and reds all around us. And, wow, does he know what to do with rocks!!
Often ephemeral & meditative, always inspirational. So we did a whole workshop on Andy’s handiwork with twigs, leaves, water…and rocks. We are ON it.
The next week we used goldenrod to dye different fabrics for future projects.
We do yoga and music and hike and sit around the lake.
Keep an eye on the Events page of our website [http://rockycorner.org/events/] for when we’re doing more fascinating walks, talks, learning and stretching our minds, bodies and souls…sometimes all at once! All are welcome.
Upcoming: Archery for Beginners, Evening Telescopes to Mars, permaculture, garlic planting – early November is the ideal time. Come join us and RSVP so we know to expect you.
There is promise in the air, promise of the brilliant foliage that blesses our land each year after the harvest. Our gardens are now nearly empty of their summer bounty, and the days are crisper with long shadows cast from a sun that has just passed over the Equator.
A small group gathers in a clearing behind the Community House to celebrate the change of season and the autumn harvest – the Fall Equinox. A table set in the center is piled with autumn crops: garlic, small brown onions, squashes in every variety and shape, gourds. Future residents of our budding community have stacked dry goods for a local food pantry. A circle begins to take shape around the table, quiet at first, as each engages in painting small smooth rocks. Timidly, a buzz rises – catching up, introductions for those new to the neighborhood, hopeful talk of moving in. There is hope in the abundance of a harvest!
We gathered as a community of family and friends to honor the changing season from summer to autumn, to recognize and give thanks for this time of harvest from the land and from our lives, and to give offerings from our own abundance to assist in the care of others. There is singing and drumming, poetry and dancing. And sharing. Speaking aloud what each is harvesting from this summer’s scorched pandemic storm: energy, adventure, community, hope. Hail and welcome! – Janis S.
“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat
match the beat of the universe,
to match your nature with Nature.”
