It's the time for letting go. We have had such a perfect summer and today is so beautiful it's hard to let go. I recently gave away some of my prized Christmas decorations. That wasn't easy for me. I even have hard time letting go of things that I have not used for many years. So things accumulate. I'm trying to get myself to start getting rid of them, but it goes against the grain. I read somewhere that it was typical for a Pisces to save even little knick-knacks because of the memories connected to them. An old man I knew who just died had such a hard time letting go of things that he had not made a will. In the autumn trees God shows me how beautiful letting go can be and how crucial it is to further growth.
