These days are feeling too busy, To Do lists spiral out of control even as we chisel them down, expanding like some sort foam insulation, growing like fungus. We are swept away in our days. Children go feral, parents seethe with the need to be 'doing something', except when we are awash in nature, when everyone calms, sweaty heads, dirty feet and all, we stop to listen, and look, and notice.
And so I'm putting up these photos from the last week or so- later than I'd planned, and less organized- but still they're a record of sorts.
::Translucent sage leaves,
::Baby feet dancing in the dirt
::Inoculating logs with Shitake plugs and finding them a nice shady spot
::Asparagus finally providing meal after meal sweet juicy stalks
::A walk down below to see how things are growing,
::A dry old shitake from the old logs
::A bright summer dress, newly sewn.
