Full Moon No.9, Fall

Hello my beloveds!

The fall season is upon us, and in true Jessica fall spirit, my life is an aligned reflection of the moon among us tonight - FULL! From restaurant reviews, workshop planning, and Luminous Elixirs development, to putting up ceilings at the Arts on Site's residency upstate and getting cast for a last minute dance gig this weekend, I've come quite close to biting off more than I can chew. But alas, I shall call on the spirit of myself in the photo above and keep things in motion...if only I could actually have a few more arms these days!

I didn't want to leave you hangin', so while this Lumen Letter is on the lighter side today, I carved out some time during commuting and rehearsal breaks to share with you a package and a poem.

The package, being my upcoming class series that sets it's roots this Sunday Oct. 8th from 2-3pm. One thing keeping me anchored during this time of fall frenzy is creating a space to gather, breathe, and move with others. That is what this series is all about - a Sunday afternoon sanctuary space for us to root down and reflect within. Register online for this 4 class series to receive a discount.


The poem, from one of my favorite poets.

Song for Autumn

In the deep fall
don’t you imagine the leaves think how
comfortable it will be to touch
the earth instead of the
nothingness of air and the endless
freshets of wind? And don’t you think
the trees themselves, especially those with mossy,
warm caves, begin to think

of the birds that will come — six, a dozen — to sleep
inside their bodies? And don’t you hear
the goldenrod whispering goodbye
the everlasting being crowned with the first
tuffets of snow? The pond
vanishes, and the white field over which
the fox runs so quickly brings out
its blue shadows. And the wind pumps its
bellows. And at evening especially,
the piled firewood shifts a little,
longing to be on its way.

- Mary Oliver
