Solar Terms: cold dew (寒露)

Cold dew is in the depths of autumn. During this season, the winds come from the north-east. Cool ear from the north east let us gradually leave the hot summers behind. Before entering Cold dew, weathers are very comfortable. 
Cold dew is the first of the twenty-four solar terms to have the word "cold." As the saying go 「露水先白而後寒」The dew becomes white then turns cold. It means that after the white dew, the weather gradually turns cold. Remember to prepare an extra blanket to not to get cold at night! 
In this solar term, the birds you normally see in the water are no longer there. flocks of birds can be seen in the air. North eastern winds are gaining strength, thus people being to fly kites in the parks. 

Before  you rush out, remember to practice some meditation. Solar terms are a natural change of energy between the heavens and earth. Grasp this opportunity to synchronise yourself with mother nature.
