Let’s face it, the world is crazier than ever. The genocide in Gaza, the ice caps melting, the ebola virus, the strange world of politics and food and GMO’s, fracking all over, and now, Toledo, Ohio not having any water. It’s enough to make you want to run and hide, except there is no where to go. So these days, I am all about creating beauty and being surrounded by things that bring me a certain feeling of joy and bliss.
This Summer has been heavenly in my little corner of the world, and as we float towards Autumn, like some of the crimson leaves that I see drifting from the trees, it’s all so beautiful.
The tomatoes have started to ripen and we’re eating them like bandits enjoying the bounty. Which makes up for the disappointment of last year with all those weeks of constant rain and not one tomato.
I have the feeling that it’s all a yin and yang thing, and the iChing that I just now consulted said that is correct 🙂
The zinnias and cosmos that I planted late, on purpose to feed the bees, are blooming magnificently.
As I sit here looking out my window to all the flowers that are colored with the light of the sun, the bees and butterflies are all gathering to feed. Everything feels perfect. Which is why I plant flowers and food for me and them – because more bliss in these crazy times is what I can contribute to keep the balance. At least in myself.
