Power Seasons

I have always been obsessed with the Fall.  True it meant going back to school as a child, but it also meant my birthday, and my birthday in our home was an EVENT, thanks to Mama Klein!  I have a theory that if you realllly like your birthday, the season that it falls in, is your “power season”.

lFall is my power season.  I feel reborn.  Summer is groovy and all, but sometimes I tend to get sluggish and lazy during the summer.  There’s something about the crisp air that the Fall brings in which feeds my soul.  I have always felt more like myself this time of the year.

Do you have a power season?  That time of year that you feel the strongest both mentally and physically?

Namaste, and Rock On!

    I’m glad that you and Mike have a week to yourselves to look forward to Lindsay! I hope you have perfect early fall weather conditions to enjoy all your activities. Summers are my most difficult time of year to get through. I look forward to the Fall with its earthy and rustic colors of foliage, and invigorating morning and evening chill, and the smell of the fall specialty dishes filling up the kitchen. Some of which I can actually eat when I prepare them macrobiotically. I look forward to Spring too, and watching all the trees and shrubs and plants come back to life from buds to blooms and blossoms of soft pastel colors and increasing hours of daylight.

    My birthday is in August, but I still think that Fall is the best (especially Indian Summer!)

      Didn’t mean that to be anonymous. It’s your tech-challenged Unk.

    Summer is mine as I was born in June and got married in July, but still get this so very much and usually how I feel as we head into summer, because of it. Wishing you a very, happy birthday and anniversary coming up now!! xoxo 😉

    Hmm, well, if birthday = power season works for you – very good! However, I was born in cold, cold January and winter is most definitely not my power season. Maybe I have to move back to Australia, then it’d be the height of summer – hahaha.
    Have a wonderful birthday and vacation together – to many more!

      HAHAH just a little theory but hey you never know, maybe somewhere in your soul winter loves you! THANKS !!!!

    I was a summer baby – but I feel the same way about spring. Everything starts growing, I can’t wait to start planting…

    Fall always means winter’s coming. I’m not a winter fan. But you almost make me want to enjoy the fall. 😉

    PS – our first date was five years ago this October 18…so we share an anniversary.
