August

 

       

    
    After Augustus defeated Cleopatra and Mark Anthony and became Emperor of Rome, the Roman Senate named a month after him- August. The word august means important, significant, noble. Paradoxically with such grand definitions this is a seemingly vague month, with no significant holidays or events to characterize it. Further, August is when most people are heat weary and yearning for the cooler days that fall will bring.

     But when we look beyond the inertia of the hot weather this month brings, we notice subtle activities going on around us. Many plants have flowered and produced their seeds while others, such as poppies and gladiolas, are just moving into their glory. Birds and animals have reared and released their young and it seems as if the earth pauses, waiting for the shortening days that will soon move nature into the transitions of fall.

     August reminds us that there are quiet times, when important and significant changes are happening below our awareness. These are the moments when we, like the earth, can pause, be still, and sense the rolling motion of time.
