Lupa has a great post up with some of her autumnal thoughts. I agree so strongly with what she says here that I have to share it with you all here. Take note of what she says about sacrifice as well as this:
I give of these parts of myself, and in return not only do I receive physical fulfillment, but I also receive lessons in how to be more present in the world and in my life.
which well sums up a core practice of my own.
I wish you all a good week.
