October just has a way of asking for balance.
With the cooler air and the beautiful change in the light, it is natural to shift into the creativity of autumn. Balancing the light and the dark, stepping into a new season, and realizing the importance of taking a breath.

Take a moment, breathe in the beauty of autumn…
…and breathe out the wounded of a new season.
