This time of year is like Chinese Thanksgiving–for a bountiful harvest before winter sets in, good health and family unity. Moon cakes, “rabbit in the moon” folklore, whole chicken/duck, taro root and pomelo (Chinese grapefruit) are traditional rituals and treats. I just got a box of beautifully wrapped lotus seed and fig moon cakes. This year, we’re treated to a rare and mystical Super Moon and eclipse!
In the glow of the full autumn moon, I am reminded of who I am, where I came from and where I want to go. And I am thankful.
