Autumnal Awakenings

It seems to me that January resolutions are about will; September resolutions are about authentic wants. . . . The beauty of autumnal resolutions is that no one else knows we’re making them. Autumnal resolutions don’t require horns, confetti, and champagne. September resolutions ask only that we be open to positive change.

Autumn begins to creep in and envelope summer.  Change seeps into leaf color and crisps breeze as nature prepares for change. 
What changes do you feel around you this September?  Take time to notice the subtle messages nature sends.
What scents arouse your writing fingers?  Listen for changes in sounds. Watch the day's progression into dusk. Feel your body's adjustments and sensations with the seasonal shift.
Which writing desires will you accomplish this fall? Reflect about changes you wish to initiate this month.  Go for autumnal awakenings.
