Autumn is truly the season of the witch, and although I love cooking dishes using summer's bounty, I look forward to the harvest holidays the most. Autumn is the time I enjoy most of all, before the biting, bitter cold of winter. It may seem like the season of dying for some, and I suppose it is, but it is when I come to life. It is when I feel the strongest connection to the earth, when life turns inward for a season of introspection and inner growth.
Then there is Samhain...Ah, Samhain. Beautiful, wonderful Halloween/Samhain, followed closely by the Day of the Dead. It's a time of remembrance and feeling a stronger connection with those who have come before. It is a time to revel in the mysteries of the wise and aged, a time to take their wisdom to heart and put it into practice. Plus the cobwebs and dust in my house look like decorations! Ha!
What season do you like best?
