The Autumn Equinox ushers in the first day of fall this Sunday, September 21, 2013.   On this day the sun shines directly on the equator making the length of day and night nearly equal.  Tomorrow's full moon is known as the Full Corn Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the corn harvest.  Local farmers are taking advantage of the fair weather and  moonlight by working long hours after dark.  The fall foliage reflects the changing season and time of pause.

Climb the mountains
and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you
as sunshine flows into trees.

The winds will blow their own
freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you 
like the leaves of autumn.


Happy Autumn,
