ninth shift: the harvest © kristin chapman 2013

It's been so long since I have posted, I have almost forgotten how this thing works. Sometimes it's just nice to stay quiet in my small corner of the world. But as the year comes to end, I realize I must catch up with my thoughts and tie all the loose ends.

In September, I begin to fall behind. I am exhausted, nauseous and constantly cold despite the warm days. My creativity has sunk and I am almost depressed because I feel so shitty. Things will turn soon and I look forward to that but for now I stay quiet.

The Ninth Shift take place in September known as the Harvest Moon for it is time to harvest crops like corn, squash and pumpkins. This year’s full moon also coincide with the Autumn Equinox and the start of fall. k
