Anticipation

seasons turn 09 01 2014Waking up today brought a quintessential Carly Simon song to mind; Anticipation! Autumn is my favourite time of the year and today initiates a new season of adventures: a friend arrives this week for a visit filled with High Play; next Monday a long journey begins with time spent with in favourite places filled with people long and dearly loved; it starts with 10-days in the Alps for a long overdue reunion; this is followed by a week of meditation in a Franciscan sanctuary in the mountains of Tuscany, a time-apart in beauty the generous gift of a dear friend; and then begins a 3-week mystery that will lead up to a time of real magic, days in Mirano, Italy (outside of Venice) where a group will gather to celebrate with friends who know what it is to BeLong.
