This week, we are witness to a leaving.
We are happy to leave behind our hottest summer.
The cooler weather delivers a bumper crop on the calendar.
Our changing world means many have already left their homes.
Floods and fires and furious fiefdoms means many more will leave.
As our friends continue to leave, we are expanding our village.
The ongoing departures are happening steadily and quietly.
New people and new promise will inhabit the new space.
Many beliefs and habits are due to be left in the past.
Young people ask old people to learn composting.
Compassion and kindness and resilience are here.
Tech will keep us together as we come and go.
It will be interesting to see where we land.
Are you ready to leave normal?
Listen to your own heartbeat.
