Wasps Don’t Like Me

After a light breakfast, I headed outside to sit in on the porch chair embracing my morning coffee. It was a beautiful morning with blue skies and sun. A cool breeze blew past me as I looked out into the garden and watched the hawk above me soar.

My husband works in the garden more than I, but I’m the detail gal. I usually go around picking big weeds, tackling thistles, and directing him on what needs attention. It’s sometimes an overwhelming task, and that is why I would love to watch the hawk more than tackling the weeds. This morning was one of those mornings where I realized that I neglected my duties.

Recently, we had a flood in our backyard, which violated our basement and our lives. The basement, 3 months later, is still under repair and our house is still disheveled. This is the ebb in life most of us know.

I took a walk in the garden and noticed all the thistle, weeds, and rotting wood. I notice how our porch and the gutters needed replacement, and how even the evergreens were losing their green. Generally, the flood disaster took our attention away from other things.

I could retreat and go inside and wait for the winter cover, but instead, I decided to place myself in the middle of nature’s encroachment. I started out in the garden where our newly planted trees existed, stuck in the dry soil and how they desperately needed water. I pulled, what seemed to be endless weeds out, while I pondered about my next business venture. Nature does this to me. It brings me back down to earth for the purpose of realizing my gifts. It makes me notice things. Nature also helped me write this blog.

A lot of people think that telepathy has to do with conversing in the head with words. While telepathy can come with words, there are other types of communications that work efficiently, especially in a relationship or team that aims at combining efforts for the greater good.

Two Norwegian Pines

When my oldest, Jimi, was 13 months old we moved into a nice house with a nice school. The yard was lovely, and the house backed up to the soccer fields and a grassy berm, covered with a mixture of foliage.

In our yard, we had Norwegian Pines, varieties of Blue Spruce, Lilac trees, and other lovely plants and bushes. Seasonally, I loved to look out the window. I would hug my trees, listen to the birds, and I would sit on the porch hammock and watch the bats and fireflies. My second born Jasper would hang there with me, and we would watch the birds at dusk, fly across the yard and ready for the night. Then the bats would emerge and keep the mosquito population down.
