Stepped out last night to look at the last super moon of season, it was warm and the air was thick. As I stood in the moonlight I felt a little melancholy as I always do in September. Winding down the short summer, the beginning of 4th quarter, and a sinking feeling when I see Christmas already on the shelves in the stores.
This September I want to squeeze every last drop of sunshine and fun out it. This Indian Summer, right? But I can’t deny the change. The leaves are falling. Flowers are fading. And the hummingbirds are bulking up, getting ready to fly out of here. They are on the feeders constantly. It’s been fun to watch as cats lay in wait by bird bath, hoping to get lucky.
Hummingbirds were sign for a client in Florida who was looking for a cremation urn for her mom. She’d been shopping online and was starting to get exasperated with the whole process. Her mother was the matriarch of the family and the client was trying to get four sisters to agree on a selection. Finally, she found this:
She knew this was the perfect urn when she saw it. Her sisters agreed. Cool, calm blue, her mom’s favorite color with a hummingbird sipping nectar from the flowers to energize for a long flight. She was crazy about the tiny bird and loved to have coffee on her lanai in the mornings and watch them swarm her feeders.
Greet Each Day
That’s the theme for September. So instead of looking backward at the calendar, I’ll try to see (and seize) the new day and stop staring at the past. If we can help you move forward on your journey, we’re here.
