A Note from Jessie

 
It's October, my friends! Crisp air, crunchy leaves, hot chocolate, hoodies and your favorite pair of worn jeans awaits you. It's the changing of the guards for the seasons. 

Fall, in all its splendor, announces in the most wondrous way that a different season is approaching. I tend to think of it more as a warning that the bitter cold of winter is approaching (think warm happy thoughts, think the beach...) But, fall lets us know that things are changing in such a lovely way that I sometimes forget the cold will soon arrive. I do realize there are many people, like my sister, who celebrate winter. Good for you! You'll find me inside by the fire. 
 
Just as seasons change, we go through season changes internally.
For us, as individuals, the 'autumn season' brings about a changing process necessary to make way for our winter where we see things more clearly and prepare ourselves for the new beginnings of spring.
 
The fall season reminds me of the goddess, Kali. Kali comes from the Sanskrit root word Kal which means time. There is nothing that can slow down the march of time. Kali is also known as the goddess of death. Just like time and death we cannot escape the changing of the seasons. However, the goddess of death brings the death of the ego, as the illusory self-centered view of reality. (www.goddess.ws)
 
We all need the changing process that includes a self-check and culling of ego the gets a little too big at times, filled with selfishness, and negativity.
 
As you feel the change of the autumn breeze and crisp air, feel the beautiful eternal changes taking place in this 
season of your soul.
 
If personal changes are something you fear, try to see the beauty of change as you let positive thoughts and feelings replace the negative, and visualize your inner transformation as a virtual kaleidoscope that mirrors the splendor of the changing fall foliage surrounding you.

As your colors burst forth put on a cozy sweater and make some hot chocolate (add a little Bailey’s should you feel inclined) and sit by the fire! It’s going to be an amazing autumn!
 
Need a little help with some of those changes? That's what I'm here for.

Book of the Month 
Playing St. Barbara by Marian Szczepanski
 

The big coal strike of 1928 ends, yet crosses still burn.

 

Angry miners plot. Company policemen stalk and spy. Miner’s wife Clare Sweeney hides bruises inflicted by her husband—and her real name. Her three daughters harbor secrets of their own. Each knows (or guesses) only fragments of the others’ unvoiced stories. 

 

Their intertwined lives eerily mirror the 7th century legend of St. Barbara, patroness of miners, reenacted annually in the town pageant. Tested by scandal, heartbreak, and tragedy, each woman will write her own courageous ending to St. Barbara’s story.

 

SELECTED BY 42 BOOK CLUBS IN EIGHT STATES.

 

A timeless story of women finding their voices in a world dominated by rigid social divisions, sexualstereotypes, bigotry, and domestic violence. I cheered for them even after I turned the last page. - Barbara Claypole White, author of The In-Between Hour

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
