rain, colder & rakes…

‘Besides the Autumn poets sing
A few prosaic days
A little this side of the snow
And that side of the Haze…
Grant me, Oh Lord, a sunny mind—
Thy windy will to bear!’
Emily Dickinson

the stonemason…

“The wisdom of the journeyman is to work one day at a time and he always said that any job even if it took years was made up out of a day’s work. Nothing more. Nothing less. That was hard for me to learn. I always wanted to be finished.

In the concept of a day’s work is a pace and wholeness. To make the world. To make it again and again. To make it in the very maelstrom of its undoing.” Cormac McCarthy, The Stonemason

reflecting upon….

there it sits unused
good intentions as tall as grass
only harder now

There was a time……

“A horse loves freedom, and the weariest old work horse will roll on the ground or break into a lumbering gallop when he is turned loose into the open.” Gerald Raftery

The Grind…….

“Let us pause in life’s pleasures and count its many tears,
While we all sup sorrow with the poor;
There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears;
Oh hard times come again no more.

Tis the song, the sigh of the weary,
Hard Times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door;
Oh hard times come again no more.”

Hard Times, Popular Song, 1854

Morning in the Garden

“Morning is the best of all times in the garden. The sun is not yet hot. Sweet vapors rise from the earth. Night dew clings to the soil and makes plants glisten. Birds call to one another. Bees are already at work.”  William Longgood

“Gardens are not made by singing ‘Oh, how beautiful!’ and sitting in the shade.” Rudyard Kipling

The bounty, the tending to, the taking it all in with approval (and disapproval..those persistent weeds), listening to the different chirping birds, watching the visiting bees and hummingbirds, getting things done early…and yes Rudyard taking a seat now and then to enjoy the efforts.
