In Greek mythology Nyx was a goddess of night, she would take form as a great bird with black wings. She gave birth to Eros who brought light into existence.
It is when I feel most like Nyx, where darkness surrounds me and all seem bleak, that I most need to remember Eros. Light that came from darkness is a sure way of regaining ones belief in hope.
Nyx to Eros
Truly I spread my wings and take flight
through the darkness I yet find my way
though the journey a lonely one
If there be a storm my wings stay strong
If there be a coldness, my wings are warm
If there be an obstacle, my wings will climb
Truly I spread my wings with hope
to find the light, and see my way
though the journey be alone
If there be a way, it will be light
that comes forth from my darkness
that breathes through my life
From Nyx to Eros.....hope
I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.
It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.
It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.
It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.
Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.
May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.
