My country property where I am now building is covered with trees. Trees that are big, small, old, young, perfect and scarred. Many just there on the ground where a storm or past timbering has left them.I love walking in the woods among them. Sometimes I will just sit on a stump or a log on the ground. With my building progressing there has been some clearing and cleaning up. I do not want to cut down anymore trees and with the many logs on the ground I am having thoughts of just leaving them. All the gardens I have created in the past have been so tidy and manicured and I am thinking that this new garden at the edge of the woods will have a more natural look.
Maybe like One Woman in these years of the 70's that I am traveling. I have been young and now much older, small, a little bigger, perfect and now scarred, a full home and now it is empty except for one soul. I am always thinking, planning for the future and reflecting on the past. The time has come to be still and empty the mind. Now is the time just to be. A time to enjoy nature and the simplicity of the lifestyle that I yearn for.
Interesting thought from "What Matters Most" by James Hollis
"We are not here to fit in, be well balanced, or provide examples for others. We are here to be eccentric, different, perhaps strange, perhaps merely to add our small piece, our selves to the great mosaic of being. We are here to become more and more ourselves"
