Today was the equinox, it officially became Autumn and my journey began. Of course it was also my last day at work before taking off three days for my daughter's wedding. So instead of coming home and leaving offerings in my gardens for the land spirits, I worked twelve hours and then drove an hour home. At least I can face the next few days with the knowledge that I did my job well today and not feel guilt over taking the time off.
It seems almost ironic that my journey is coinciding with my becoming an "empty nester". Hopefully tomorrow I will get the chance to actually start my journey.
