WPC: Seasons


“Your path, like all paths, has its seasons. Many bends can make it difficult to follow. Stop and rest when you are tired, or dance and sing when it pleases you. The tallest trees are totems belonging to the heavens. Saplings are teachers; they reveal how each of us can make use of small amounts of light. Some trees have fallen, as will you one day. They feed the many lives that have no wings. They become soft with time, offering an unseen world the best of food and shelter.” Β  ~Β Bob Luckin

        I read that the Monarch population has tripled – woohoo! It is still 25% of what it was and there is more work to do, but the efforts so far have yielded a positive result. Numbers may be back to normal by 2020 if this success continues -such good news! Gardeners rock!

    The path can also go uphill and be a struggle, but “what goes up, must come down”…
