Watching the Weather

The weather forecast called for heavy rain later in the day so I rushed up the mountain to move the mower to a safe place in the orchard. I saw the rain clouds approaching and knew that as in most days the weather was in control.

Fall Ritual

A year ago I started a new fall ritual when we purchased a field mower to pull behind the Bobcat. There is something very meditative that happens as I make pass after pass in the afternoon sun. It is good for the field and the soul.

Churned Up

An ocean storm far off shore can send out an undercurrent that can churn up the waters on another shore. People get churned up by the undercurrents of negativity. Love can calm the seas of life.

Pondering Life

I watched a seabird all alone as it walked along the sand looking as if it was pondering life. I wondered if it was thinking of humans and how they act. I wondered about how we are all connected by a vast web that touches all things.
