    I did enjoy your 14 posts to make us more aware of Summer. Now I am aware of it going.
    Since we had no real summer, since we got so much rain, I planted my favorite flowers after the monsoon, hoping they would come – and, they did! Zinnias, Sunflowers, Love in a Mist, and Calendula are all blooming!
    But oh, I do feel the fall coming….and like you, have always felt a sense of foreboding.
    I will watch and become aware of the thoughts this year…and breathe, and wait for spring’s return.

    Maria, I will miss your daily Summer meditations, but will look back and read them again and again. And I know we will continue to get much wisdom and thought provoking messages from you even though Summer is drifting on. I Love the Fall, so I will have much to look forward to, but my darling Goddaughter has gone to Canada for College, so a piece of my heart is missing right now and I’m going to learn to deal with that as I drink in the Fall colors. Life is such a mixture of joy and pain, but I wouldn’t miss it for anything. Thanks again.

    Maria, would you consider doing some Fall and Winter meditations? I also feel sadness with Fall approaching (thanks to seasonal affective disorder) and truly dislike Winter. Some meditations for the change of seasons would be great! Thanks.
