Farewell to Fall


OK, so it’s starting to get cold outside. The change of seasons is always a challenge to body and mind. We know this from Shiatsu and acupuncture studies and from the way we start to feel right about now.

At the end of spring, we asked students to share what they looked forward to in summer. It’s only fair, now that it’s late fall, to give winter an equal opportunity to be welcomed. Because it seems a little harder to face winter, let’s see if we can generate some community warmth about it!

Send in your thoughts about winter—what do you like, look forward to, or remember fondly about it? What are your getting-ready-for-winter rituals? We invite writing, poetry, painting, photos, songs, or any other creative outlet.

Entries will be posted on The Swede (writing may be edited for grammar or length with your approval) and all entries will be put into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate for Starbucks. Send entries to [email protected] by November 19, 2010. A winning entry will be selected on November 22, 2010.
