Autumn Equinox 23rd September 2014. More than just ‘Equal Night’.

Autumn - the colour of our marriage

Today is a special day. It’s the end of summer, today, night and day are of equal length, and from now on we will see the nights getting longer and the mornings getting colder – a chill in the air that means our toes linger out of the duvet a for few seconds before the rest of our body follows – the leaves are dancing and gliding from trees, full of colour – gold, copper, red – beautiful as they drift into the rivers and onto the grass.

R and I got married on the Autumn Equinox 7 years ago. Today is therefore the 7 year anniversary of our marriage. Copper is also the precious material to celebrate seven years of marriage, fitting as a beautiful autumnal colour. We got married in a cave, and danced outside on a farm on one of the last warm days of the year.

Happy Autumn Equinox.

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” — George Eliot
