Summer is coming alive here. The soothing sounds of the migrant summer birds, sunlight streaming into places that it hasn’t for many months, flowering herbs, fruiting trees, mosquitoes and bats. The spring peepers have given way to bullfrogs, and the dragonflies are everywhere again, seeking warm peaceful places to land. I love it all and want to savor every second. It’s hard not to want to be outside every single second!
Sometimes I feel like life is just cranking by, and I am afraid of how much I’m missing, like I’m behind on the truly important parts, and will never be able to catch up. To be able to toss out all the excess, all the man made distractions, and live in little wooden hut with lots of windows, with an outdoor shower, an outdoor kitchen, a few chickens for fresh eggs, an abundant garden, a stream nearby… Doesn’t that sound about right? Oooh, it does to me.
