I know summer must be coming even though spring never arrived. And thus, I am gearing up to do “things”: field trips, hikes, website updates, workshops, visits with friends and more. The season is fleeting even when it doesn’t start slowly, and I cannot afford to waste a moment. Old gears can be coaxed back into action, it is just a matter of effort and getting the rust off.
The start of the new month and year always is straight to start and then bends out of our sight, keeping hidden what lies ahead. Making it hard to plan for every contingency in an attempt to ward off disaster. This can be frustrating and soothing at the same time in an odd confluence of 2 different feelings. There is only the now and the short view ahead, and maybe that is for the best.
