This vid was taken in northern New Mexico. Community ditches, or ‘acequias’, are used for irrigation on farm land for growing alfalfa, watering livestock, or gardening… the water here is low. It’s time to limit the consumption of water, as it is now fall and not needed. The process can be very complicated, but most certainly a huge star in Spanish heritage. No, you don’t have to be of Spanish/Hispanic descent to water your farms through acequias!
I also was taken by the reflections and fallen leaves in this vid. A strange sadness came over me and I realized, the fall is the bridge to winter. The season that calls for silence and inner bundling. It’s the reflection of the leaves and flowers as they release from their home and to the ground – where they mingle with the earth; a coming home of sorts.
I’m asking myself: where are my leaves landing? Is it home?
