In the Summertime

SADHVI

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.

I stumbled onto a short little clip that Isabella Rossellini made, about the bees: take a moment out of your crazy day to watch it.

Om Shanti.

Sadhvi Sez: Yup, it’s Summer!

Today is the official first day of Summer, so I thought I would take you on a little flower trip through my Spring garden.

The Osho News site has done a nice job of taking my pictures and making them into a slide show.

This past Spring was truly more like summer, but since it is my favorite season, I really savor it, no matter how it’s served up by Mother Nature.  It’s kind of like life: I am starting to get into it more, enjoying the ride, really.  Maybe it’s the nice thing about getting older? You start to realize that it’s all about squeezing the juice out of life.  Just click on the picture of the flowers below and enjoy!
