Every Sunset is Followed by Sunrise

“Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Once again I’m prompted to write during a Disseminating Moon. Contemplating my 70th birthday now less than a month away. This puts me in the Balsamic phase of my personal annual cycle. So many changes already, yet there are more unknowns waiting in the darkness. I rest peacefully in the dark knowing that my sense of purpose is deepening. Trusting I’ll enter my next decade with renewed vision and passion. Even so, it will probably be another 18 months before the Sun really dawns, throwing light on my new directions.

Meanwhile, I am so grateful for these moments of beauty. They quiet my mind and inspire me with dreams for the future.
