Fall, In & Around Us



First day of fall. 

Yes, yes, YES!!

What’s early fall feeling like where you live? 

I returned Sunday from 4 days in sunny and HOT L.A. (high 80s) visiting Connor. I wore the same denim skirt for 3 days (because I packed quickly and oddly), tank tops, flip flops and I loved it – the hot summery days!

Back in Portland, I wake to foggy, cool mornings. Crisp air and clouds begin to set up shop -- and there’s SO much to love about their energy, too!  

“If a year was tucked inside a clock, then Autumn would be the magic hour.”

Beyond the shifting weather patterns of a new season, we feel into the shifting energy, qualities, and wisdom, of a new season: 

changing light
observation, noticing, meditation
letting go, surrender, release
forgiveness (self + all around)

WTG themes this fall follow the season’s energy: 


Self-Friendship& Free-Flow Writing


Noticing& Free-Flow Writing 


Surrender& Free-Flow Writing


This season, notice how fall’s unique qualities and energy play in and around you. 

Here’s a gorgeous fall image I fell in love with from the talented Shanna Trumbly (who I met last weekend at Anya Hankin’s gorgeous Rooted + Resilient workshop).

Thank you, Shanna, for gifting us at that circle with your vibrant (dishwasher safe!!) stickers! I’ve never seen anything like them! Your frog now lives on my water bottle. Your owl lives on my phone case. Each time I look at them – JOY! Check the stickers out here.

And thank you, Anya, for gathering such warm, talented, and inspiring women for your beautiful offerings. I still feel residual effects from the witnessing and intention setting in that Circle. Powerful stuff. (Great things happen when women Circle-Up!)

If you’re in Portland, we’re Circling-Up Wednesday (9/19). Register in Circles. 

With love,

Want to write?
Take a pen & prompt journey:

writing prompt


1. Grab a pen & notebook. Write the prompt at the top of the page. Set a timer for 10 minutes. Or 5. Or 2!

2. Keep your pen moving as you write the thoughts, feelings, and images that arise. Don’t stop to think or edit.

3. Accept ALL that you write - the pretty + ugly; absurd + boring. Discover what wants to be felt, known, expressed, released...
