Meditations on Subtlety & Spaciousness

/
This time of the year is characterized by the qualities of subtlety, lightness, dryness, and mobility and this morning I could feel each of these qualities so clearly. The dry frosty ground beneath my feet, the cold wind on my skin, the lightness of the tree branches looking so fragile without their leaves, and the subtlety of light and morning mist that lends mystery to this season.

It's time for fall cleaning in my household. Every spring and fall I do a major cleaning and organizing of everything in the house. I get rid of anything that is not necessary or isn't being used, and I clean every corner and cupboard. I know it's time to do it again because I feel like I can't get on to any new projects until I clear out the clutter from the last four busy months of summer activity.
