Happy February, Everyone! I noticed on my way to work this morning that it started getting light before I made it there. It made me ridiculously happy! There are longer, lighter, brighter days ahead, my friends! I was instantly filled with garden dreams – new projects I’m going to start, old un-finished projects I’m finally going to finish, new successes, and new failures.
Last year and beyond, my garden was my savior, my escape. It still is, but this year I’m promising myself that I’m going to BE in my garden for the sake of just BEING – not for the sake of escaping.
It feels like a great calm has settled over chaos in the last week, and although lies still run rampant, theatrics are abundant, and tensions are still high, it’s all somehow muted. I detect a new hum in the Universe, the wheels of a functioning government starting to slowly turn again. I’m looking forward to a time where all is not lost if I forget to think about the news for a day or two. Where it’s okay to relax a little. Battered and weary, we made it this far. I think we all deserve some peace, don’t you? The kind of peace one can enjoy under a lot less pressure.
