We here at High Hope are learning from this seasonal “in-between” time: the height of summer’s heat along with the absence of soaking rains, while at the same time welcoming the advent of autumn’s approach, predicted by the blooming of plants known as “Snow on the Mountain” (from the spurge family).
And, as we meet these tall and narrow plants with their white tufts of small and tender flowering blooms, seen throughout the native grasslands of High Hope, we are visually reminded of the subtle nuances which are matter’s influencers, especially within such “in-between” times – not only through the undeniable changing conditions of weather or the less obvious moving configurations of the planets — this also becomes a time to reflect on our own direct intentions and actions towards the well-being of High Hope’s long-term future!
We are all together moving along in making a dream of land legacy come true, a conservancy in perpetuity, where these habitats, facilities and program offerings are preserved as dedicated space not only for the immediate future but for generations to come!
In doing so, we come to honor the foundational structures of our past, and through a consortium of organizational alliances are collaborating to create new frameworks which support High Hope moving into Her next collective era!
Our recent New Moon brought to us to Council to explore the element of “reset” in our own lives and for the world around us — a factor very much calling our individual and collective attention. And so, we want to offer this seasonal “prompt” to you each and all — how are you meeting these “in-between” times? How have you been met by these “in-between” times? What might be the forecasting signs in your midst? And, how has High Hope been a support to your own Journey of connection and relation with paying attention to your inner self and with Nature?
We continually deepen our understanding in asking ourselves these questions! Please share your own notices with us, we continue to learn and grow together!
