Coming into Winter... / by Minna Leunig

The days are getting shorter and darker and colder, and I feel like something is brewing deep down within me but I don't know what yet. It's time to hibernate, to reflect, to think about what comes next. I feel like I'm at a crossroad and there is well of nervous excitement within me - wanting to move forward tentatively, cautiously, carefully - yet simultaneously wanting with all my heart to burst out of my shell and fly forward without guard or restraint. I am in awe of life's unpredictability.
