Hint of Sadness

photo-111I prefer to water my garden in the mornings.  I stumble around with coffee in one hand and dripping hose in the other.

Observing my surroundings it occurred to me that I have so much to learn about gardening.  My shallots grew huge.  My garlic seemed to get smaller in size.  Potatoes…well…let’s not talk about them!  I want to be better at growing veggies.

I got a little sad when I thought, I wonder if I’ll be around next year to garden?  I feel great now but you never know what’s to come.

  2. I have that hint too, my kids are back in school, 4th and 6th grade, will I make it to Christmas this year, will I make it to 7th and 8th. I am usually not stuck or sad, but right now…

  3. I wonder if the sadness comes more as summer fades…. I know that I am surrounded right now by a large number of friends dying. It makes it much harder for me to sit with hope. And after 4 1/2 years in treatment, I just feel how tired my body is with the constant assault. But may we live to see many highlights in 2015 and beyond.

    with love, marcy

    I thought the same thing when we didn’t plant a garden this year because of our move. Will I be here to plant one next year? This is how we live.
