When I was younger, I made plans, worked on projects, had lists pages long, kept journals and notebooks, and loved crossing something off one of the lists…I still do these things, but….
Nowadays, I have taken the time, at least every hour in my projects, to stop and enjoy where I am, what I am doing. I don’t fret about getting something done as I used to. I don’t frantically try to finish up when the light, or my strength, or the heat gets to me.
I now realize I will never really finish anything in the garden. It is a work in progress, and in a way, that is the point. It is fleeting. It will never be done. Stop, listen, inhale, sit and soak it up. This is where I am. This is what I am doing. I take it in my mind’s eye. DH records it sometimes in pictures. Below is a bit of his record:
Don’t wait so long, any of you out there, to learn these lessons — enjoy today too!
What projects are you currently pursuing that will take a long time (but that’s okay)?
