The cold nip on the air even on a warm day...memories of chilly Winter creeping in quickly now.
While I love the peaceful cool of Autumn days and the wind-free reprieve, I do not look forward to the damp, cold days of Winter. That feeling of days going past without a ray of sunshine on my skin, the coldness that creeps into your bones. If ever there was a person who would thrive in moderate to hot temperature climates, it would be me. I am most comfortable in dry warmth. My acupuncturist would tell me that this is because I am a damp, clammy body...mmm sounds great doesn't it? But with the classifying body-types, TCM uses these terms as guides for specific treatments.
So with gratitude for the last warm Autumn days, I will prepare for the next 5 months of chill.
Of course there are delicious soups, stews, baked fruit puddings, sherry and cosy mornings in bed to look forward to...
