The events
of the last few months and years
have stretched us.
We are worn
and we are weary.
Hopefully we are a little wiser too.
We are looking ahead
to Gardening Season 2011.
How could it be that time once again?
Those 1st 4 Gardening Seasons
on this Little Farm,
we were set on expansion.
We had successes
and we wanted more.
So we overdid it.
It took the outside stresses
of this last year
to see that
we simply could not care
for it all.
We could not enjoy it
in the way that desire.
This year,
we ask:
What is essential?
And, what can be just set aside?
These days,
that is a kind
and nurturing balm.
