Fall is a Good Season

I think it's Wiccans who have their new year in October - Samhain, I think? And there's a ritual you can do, has to do with cleansing and off-loading the past. This sounds like an excellent idea, and I love that it's in the fall. (Spring doesn't need any help - it's rebirth a-go-go everywhere you look.)
So it's Autumn and I'm waking up! And re-inventing myself. Or maybe the rebirth idea is better. Weight, diet, habits of exercise, proper care of self...I better light a candle.

p.s. I noticed you're Fall is the New Spring* thing, and felt the need to add to the holidays you mentioned: Día de los Muertos and Diwali. I saw an ad for Bollyween, and I thought---oh man, I should check that out! If only I were 25 years younger....

*on a tangent, I'm totally hooked on Orange is the New Black. Well, first season. We'll see about season 2.

SHE'S ALIVE!!!!!!! (and so is something in her gut)

Maybe you should have watched "Alien" instead of Austen.

j/k

I actually am a fan of 19th century lit, and used to have jags of reading Dickens, Doestoevsky, Austen, etc. I just don't have time enough to read lately. (wah!) But yeah, I like to immerse myself in genres sometimes.

Good to see you back, and wishing you a speedy recovery from the ick!

Ok, maybe I'm just too tired (as always lately), but you appeared to not be HERE, and that kind of freaked me out.

Please don't disappear, except pound-wise, if that's what you wish.
Thank you,
Your Spark Friend J
