From Natalie Goldberg's The True Secret of Writing
We are slowly getting our light back, emerging from the winter darkness. However, the darkness has been bearable as we have been experiencing a serious drought in California. Daytime has been dry and sunny. Seems like an extension of autumn. And the plants and animals are confused thinking spring is here with all the warm sunlight. I'm confused too! What season is it?

Her colors promote healing and balance. She is spiritual and can teach us how to soul travel, improve the powers of our mind and be graceful.
