October’s candle is a protection spell for travelers, with aromas that grant a wish of safe passage to all. The sweet wind of Jasmine flowers and dream inducing mugwort mingle with warm spices of cinnamon and clove to guide the sense wherever you may roam.
There is a heaviness with the turning of the seasons, but I dare you to be light of foot as the days grow shorter. Let each new turn ahead inspire you to be gracious for simple gifts like taking one foot in front of the other. A road less traveled can be the greatest teacher as we see the world through other’s eyes and the light from a different perspective. Listen, look and leap. Boldly go. Let your heart be a guide.
Freedom by Oliver Runner
Give me the long, straight road before me,
A clear, cold day with a nipping air,
Tall, bare trees to run on beside me,
A heart that is light and free from care.
Then let me go! – I care not whither
My feet may lead, for my spirit shall be
Free as the brook that flows to the river,
Free as the river that flows to the sea.
