A Witch’s Job Is to Turn the Wheel and Round and Round the Wheel Must Turn

Fall came to the mountains this morning, with cold rain and with mist moving over the valleys the way a lover moves on the beloved.

Not meteorological Fall, nor Civil Fall, nor our liturgical Fall, but the land’s Fall, the Fall of these mountains, this place.

Driving back early from nearly a week in the city, I could feel something ancient and strong coming back to life, waking itself back up, reveling in the cool, fresh air.  Even  after the rain, the skies stayed a soft grey and the breeze stayed refreshing and vital, especially after a week of really intense heat and humidity.

There may well be a few more hot days here and there, but today was the day the when Wheel turned, at least  up here in the Virginia Blue Ridge — and I am ready for it.

May it be so for you.

    The first steps of the change came here in BC as well. Soft rain and ground mist blurring the edges. The cycles holding still. The big wheel keeps on turning. Hope.

  2. Another BC’er here too 😀 … looks like we’ve got a few more hot days ahead, but like you I feel the wheel has indeed turned. 🙂
