Metal & autumn 

 

Following the richness of Harvest comes the clarity and coolness of Autumn.  The air is cold and crisp and a bright white light settles on everything, very different from the golden light of the season before.  It's a time for reflection on the year just passed, a time to gather all the treasures of the year, and to dispose of that which is no longer needed. Watch the transition of the trees during this time: in Autumn, the leaves shine bright and radiant, the tree's final flourish - a short moment where all the beauty of the year can be appreciated before they fall to the ground to ensure nourishment for next year's Spring.  The transitions of Autumn enable us not only to take pride in achievements and value the lessons learned, but also to understand how letting go provides the foundations for new beginnings.
