The Autumnal Equinox is today Friday, September 23, 2011.
It’s one of only two times in a year that the day and night are of equal length. (Light and Dark in Balance)
The Equinox reminds us about the passage of time-change, the motion of the Earth-change, and the different seasons-change. (Change is certain, Growth is optional)
Along with the Winter and Summer Solstices they demarcate the four seasons.
Today marks the start of Autumn (Fall) for us in the Northern Hemisphere.
For the Southern Hemisphere, it’s reversed. Spring has just begun… (North and South in Balance)
Today the Sun will begin to rise at the South Pole after six months of darkness (Keep moving into the Light)
Today when the Sun passes straight overhead, at the “zenith” for people on the equator, like in Kenya or Ecuador, there simply aren’t any shadows. (An opposite of Emerson’s Quote: “When it’s dark enough you can see the stars”, “When it’s fully light there ARE no shadows!”)
On this day, the Sun rises directly in the East, and sets directly in the West. (the Rest of the year this varies slightly…)
So on this naturally balanced day may you find your balance and center, in tune and in harmony with mother nature.

The second dish is a musical interlude with the Andre Rieu Orchestra from Holland and a thirteen year old virtuoso Melissa Venema playing Taps in its entirety.
The Original version of Taps was called Last Post , and was written by Daniel Butterfield in 1801as you will hear in this clip. In 1862 it was shortened to 24 notes and re-named Taps.
