Of course, it is my birthday month ... and Halloween ... but truly my favorite aspect of this season is The Great Pumpkin!
This past weekend, Cowgirl and I made our annual pilgrimage to our favorite pumpkin patch. Here in the Midwest, pumpkin patches can be big business. We live minutes away from the major attraction for our region, but we've only gone there once. Instead, we head north to our old neighborhood and the family farm that we've been visiting every year since Cowgirl's arrival.
While the bargains still abound (a trunk full of pumpkins for $10) this once well-kept secret is no longer our quiet, little family space. Even the owner seemed weary of the crowds despite the fact business is booming and the fields already emptied of pumpkins with weeks to go until Halloween.
I just love the fullness, the jaunty spirit and robust glee of a pumpkin (or gourd), don't
This year feels particular rich and bountiful as I find myself engaged in many colorfully abundant, radiant and heart-filling adventures. There is my Mandala circle (still time to join!) that is becoming quite a playground of experiences for myself and others.

There is the Fearless Sisters Oracle Deck project that is such an offering of love and a testimony to the power of collaboration.
And I am excited to share ... drum roll ...

I am rather gobsmacked to be part of this group of woman, many of whom are mentors, inspirations, dear sisters and friends. They are a rockin' group of creatives and this Spring's offering of 21 Secrets by Dirty Footprints Studio looks to be incroyable! The offering will be delivered via a downloadable ebook which means you have access forever to the workshop teachings, videos and visual materials.
I know ... 21 different instructors, 21 classes to dive into and explore. What is my contribution? You guessed it Mandala Meditation and Play. Full descriptions of each offering can be found here.
(Full disclosure: This is an affiliate program which means if you follow the links from my page or the 21 Secrets button on my sidebar and then purchase the course, I will be receiving a percentage of that sale. Another aspect of the generosity and abundance of collaboration, cooperation and mutual inspiration.)
Great pumpkins indeed! Rolling in the bounty ...
Proof positive that dangerous thoughts, acts of daring and whispers from the heart do bring about abundant flow. Even if it is only in pumpkins and girls. But I love this view, don't you?
Dream big my friends ... and be prepared for those dreams to grow!
