Sunlight streams down on this late afternoon of the Autumnal Equinox. From this marker holiday, Daylight will decrease as the Sun deepens its crossing of the Southern Sky.
Ancient Peoples knew their lives were bound into the annual Cycles of Renewal of the Sun and the Earth. They did not take for granted the return of the Sun nor the continuation of the Life Giving Capacity of the Earth. Their annual Celebrations marked the wonder of such Cycles, their place in it, their prayer for the continuation of Life itself.
We "modern" "advanced" Humans have somehow stepped outside the Circle of Life. Let us not forget the Power, Wonder and Mystery of Creation which was given to us and of which we are part.
