Finding Contentment and Balance at the Autumn Equinox

Standard

HobbitContentment

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

September 22nd is the date that Tolkien stated was Bilbo and Frodo’s birthday.  I’m sure it was no mistake that the Autumn Equinox often falls then; the festival of Mabon.  It is a time of contentment, bringing in the harvest, feeling grateful for what we have.  It is the balance point between the busyness of summer and the time of drawing inward as we prepare for winter.  Give thanks for what this year has given you.  Find your balance.  And like a good hobbit, have a fun and cozy harvest feast with family and friends!
