As we stash away our Summer flip flops, take out our scarves (FYI, we acupuncturists are a bit neurotic about scarves!), and contemplate recipes that incorporate squash and pumpkins, so too do we have the opportunity to evaluate what we’ve been harvesting in our life, including what does, and what doesn’t, work for us in our lives.
