Notes from the Garden
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
Autumn is the time for gratitude, a time to slow one’s pace and savor what has transpired.
We enjoyed good yields that were shared by our neighbors. We worked hard on many projects and rooted friendships as we grew community. We joined in collaboration to “just do stuff” with a wider community. We even found time to sit in quiet meditation.
Now is the time to consider a pause in activity to fully take in what we’ve accomplished together. Now is the time to consider what seeds we may sow in the future.
I am so grateful for all the energies people have brought to the garden. I am so grateful that others are dreaming gardens for other locations. And what a joy that we are all opening to new skills, ideas, and possibilities. Most of all I am so grateful that we have a shared journey that continues to unfold, one slow step at a time.
