New Beginnings…Optimism

“The greatest fine art of the future will be the making of a comfortable living from a small piece of land.” Abraham Lincoln

“To dream a garden and then to plant it is an act of independence and even defiance to the greater world.” Stanley Crawford

“We gardeners are healthy, joyous, natural creatures. We are practical, patient, optimistic. We declare our optimism every year, every season, with every act of planting.” Carol Deppe

Brain Fog and a dash of humor

Brain fog, scattered thoughts, vague recollections, hungover, forgetting, procrastination, anxiety, exhaustion, blah. Going through life in a daze…barely remembering a crisper, sharper image. Accepting half assed.

Penny the Cat Perched High

Cats are domesticated, but their instinctive knowledge – imprinted from living for millenniums in the wild – has not faded. Cats share a strong instinct to climb, compelling them to seek out high places even when you and your dog are nowhere to be seen. From a raised perch, they’re able to observe their territory without worrying about predators, and can wait with an eye out for prey.

Cats also instinctively seek out hideaways as part of their natural behavior, both for hunting and protection. That’s why they seek out the shadows, the secret perches, and why, when you least expect it, you notice eyes glowing from some dark space between the wall and the couch. (x)

Nurture or Nonsense?

“These are the few ways we can practice humility:  To speak as little as possible of one’s self.  To mind one’s own business.   Not to want to manage other people’s affairs.  To avoid curiosity.  To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully.  To pass over the mistakes of others.  To accept insults and injuries.  To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.  To be kind and gentle even under provocation.”  Mother Teresa

“If there is anything more annoying in the world than having people talk about you, it is certainly having no one talk about you.”   Oscar Wilde

“’Shoot the wounded… what we do to people who are the most vulnerable… we ‘shoot the wounded.’ As if they haven’t suffered enough, we add to it by gossiping and treating hurt people like outcasts.” Lynn Dove, Shoot the Wounded
