In the garden:
and daisies too.
the rainy weather making everything lush.
J Ruth Gendler’s Book of Qualities. Always. And this Quality in particular because I’m working on it:
Stillness will meet you for tea or a walk by the ocean.You must be gentle when you approach her. She is more sensitive than we can imagine and she does not explain herself much. Sometimes I bring her flowers – not because she needs them (she tends several gardens) – but because I am better able to meet her when I am carrying flowers. Her favorite time is dawn.
A weekend of camping. I can’t remember the last time I had one of those.
I won’t give up by Jason Mraz.
And Timshel by Mumford & Sons. Also because it reminds me of my pal Jamey & my brother.
My brother. Fighting wild fires in Wyo. I have a post on that boy. Sometime next week maybe. For now:
I’m grateful for all the folks I know that serve.
And all the myriad ways we can join them in service. To one another. To the world outside our door of comfort and stagnancy.
To good parents. Mine.
And others that are on their journey towards become amazing guides for wee ones. Raising children well. Now that’s some service.
Love to you all.
