Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.

Talking with Nelson
I am feeling so happy with my garden and with all of life … I think it is time for another GIVEWAY. I think the perfect choice would be Garden Art Signs – 4 garden art signs of your choice … flowers, veggies, fruits … whatever you want. Just comment me with your tip for keeping the planet a cleaner, better place … I so love comments [it makes my day] – I know it is weird sometimes trying to comment and it doesn’t work. Just click on comment – and then anonymous – and put your name in the comment – please. Drawing for custom garden art signs will be Tuesday, April 26th at noon.
Tid bits from the homefront:
Another beautiful day in the woods. After all of the storms we have had here lately, I am even more grateful when the sun is shining and the air is warm. A yellow butterfly flew right into my craft room this morning … what a beautiful ‘good morning message’ I had.
Last evening I spent a wonderful hour on the phone with my sister Cathee. How grateful I am that we found each other. She is amazing. She has gone through a horrible ordeal with cancer, which we know can really crush one’s spirit … not Cathee – she is so positive and determined to be alive and happy. She and her partner Martha seem so happy together and supportive of one another … I so love that. CAN’T WAIT until I go to
in July and spend time with them. Family has always been the most important thing to me … and now my fam is growing and growing … brother, sister, and all of Caleb’s family … I so love it. Grateful. Grateful. Life is so good. Massachusetts
There are tadpoles in the pond … how cool is that.
The kids were really excited to see what I did this weekend with the garden. We worked a bit – watered much – enjoyed the beauty of the new backyard. Since I started this small school 12 years ago, we have all enjoyed planting/nurturing, building ponds, exploring the outdoors … incorporating hands on science, art, nutrition, conversation and life skills into each day … much learning fun.
A few additions today:
Now we are deciding where to have ‘the Miranda Tree’ in our new yard. After Miranda passed away, we chose our favorite tree and hung mementos of Miranda on it … it has been special to us, and was the only drawback to moving.
I love reading Cristina’s thoughts/words/advice … she is featured in Oprah Magazine this month … check it out: http://www.oprah.com/style/Philosophy-Founder-Cristina-Carlino-on-Healthy-Aging
I like to think I celebrate ‘Earth Day’ each and every day … though I think we need to use the upcoming day itself as a reminder for ourselves and for others … a time when we can all come together as a community cleaning up and celebrating how fortunate we are to have a beautiful planet … let’s work for a few minutes each day to rearrange our thinking … one less plastic bottle, one less hour driving the car, one less light on …is the greenest grass in the neighborhood worth the poisonous affects? Food for thought. xo
The struggle to save the global environment is in one-way much more difficult than the struggle to vanquish Hitler, for this time the war is with ourselves. We are the enemy, just as we have only ourselves as allies.
