Celebrating The Fall Equinox

On September 22 Body Grace celebrated the Fall Equinox with charity classes to benefit the Vienna CROP walk. The CROP walk helps raise money and awareness about world hunger.
Here are the quotes I used in the classes, as well as the playlist. Thanks to all those who participated.

Change is a measure of time and in the autumn, time seems speeded up. What was, is not and never again will be; what is is change. – Edwin Teale

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. – Stanley Horowitz

By all these lovely tokens

September days are here

With summer’s best of weather

And autumn’s best of cheer.

- Author Unknown

The leaves are falling, falling as from way off, as though far gardens withered in the skies; they are falling with denying gestures. And in the nights the heavy earth is falling from all the stars down into loneliness. We all are falling. This hand falls. And look at others: it is in them all. And yet there is one who holds this falling endlessly gently in his hands. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
