sun, rain, dirt, insects

earth's abundance, holy ground

breath of life

I want my children to know what they are eating

to know that food comes from the ground, the farm..

that real food is slow, takes time to grow, to prepare, to eat

I want them to dirty their hands in the soil

to grow a small patch every year

to feel the sun and rain and cloud cover overheard

Tomorrow's Tomatoes

Our many Goddesses ~ by L Moore

tiny, tender, earth's

greening shoots; primavera

tomorrow's garden

Today the kids and I hoe,
laughing, stretching out, digging deep
spring awakens an inner vigour;
a need to plant, to be one with the earth,,
a great joy from depths within

and so the cycle begins again,
planting, growth, abundant harvest

honouring her,

this month of May

Are We There Yet?

new day's dawn awaits
opportunity refined
outline a fresh path

the new year is well underway for most, but i am still honing my path..
never too late to get on with it!

Peter Bregman at hbr blog network suggests that successful people should have 2 lists, a focus list and an ignore list, but not in that order..
"what am I willing not to achieve?
what doesn't make me happy?
what's not important to me? 

then can one can ask the complimentary set of questions

what am I trying to achieve?
what makes me happy?
what's important to me?"

 a new day, a new month, a new year it's a great time to visualize a plan, to start fresh, to add a few new colours to my palette..

In January for several years i have collaged my goals, a simple and elegant tool, So, it's February, no time like the present!
I pulled out some magazines, the scissors and glue, grabbed my teenagers, because this is a wonderful habit for young adults too, and thought about these questions as we collaged. Thought about our truths, what was important, and threw it all out there onto paper.

Go about this project with intention. It is very powerful. Warning, if you use a poster expect to want to fill it, this can be somewhat consuming, in a good way, and you can always use smaller paper!
busy, busy, busy
we've missed you!

A Blessing for the Unique Shape of  Your Soul
May you recognize in your life,
the presence and power and light of your soul.
May you realize that you are never alone,
but that your soul,
in it’s brightness and belonging
connects you intimately
with the rhythm of the universe.
 May you have respect for own your individuality, and difference
And may you realize that the shape of  your soul is unique,
That you have a special destiny here,
And that behind the fa├žade of your life
There is something beautiful and good
 and eternal happening in you. 
May you learn to see yourself
with the same delight
 and pride and happiness
with which  God 
sees you
in every moment.
~John O'Donohue

If you realized how beautiful you are,
you would fall at your own feet. 
 ~Byron Katie

It is the anniversary of the birth of my daughter and the death of a dear friend,
this was in my mailbox and it spoke to me.

Blessings on your day! xxxx
