more specifically, get outside. This morning, in spite of having many things on the to do list, I went outside just to look at and enjoy the amazing things right outside my door. I swept off my new pavers, pulled up a few weeds, did some arranging of chairs and table, and suddenly felt so at peace and satisfied.
I have a lot of artful paths through my gardens. They are bordered by flowers and grasses that I call lovely and good. They seed themselves and spring up here and there, sometimes in the path. From time to time I take stock of how they are spreading and whether or not I like them where they are. If I don’t like them, I pull them out. When I don’t pay enough attention to them they can actually obscure the path or make it hard to navigate. This is just like life. I can draw some kind of lesson from my garden anytime I go out there and so can we all. Get outside, get peaceful, look around, think and figure something out.
