“Earth’s crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God; And only he  who sees takes off his shoes; The rest sit round it and pluck  blackberries.”  –Elizabeth Barrett Browning

As I get older I find myself more and more in tune with the changing seasons.  Perhaps when I was younger I thought I was too busy to listen to messages from our mother the earth, or maybe I thought doing so would make me seem weird.  As you get older, being weird doesn’t matter as much.

Listen to the wisdom of the changing seasons.  This is mother earth’s way of preparing us for what lies ahead.

We already know what we need to weather seasonal changes.  We just have to listen.
