Busy Time and Dreamtime

It’s so tempting. When I was professional and overworked all those years, the little things did not get done: the corner-sweeping details of house and garden. Now with the luxury of time, I am enjoying getting around to some of these in an unhurried way.

But wait! It’s possible to get completely engaged with this taking-care-of-things. I find myself thinking that I could get everything truly in order, when that’s not really my nature or calling. It’s important not to get busy all over again. I need the dreamtime to watch dragonflies and herons at the beaver pond, write poetry, and follow impulse.

I wanted to find your new email (if you have one) to tell you that I saw the beginnings of the trout lilies on my lunchtime walk. Thanks to you for pointing them out to me a million years ago. And I wanted to invite you to a book party I'm giving myself. Call or email me, okay?

I love reading about your life.
