Good Morning

Day 297…

Sometimes, if I’m too preoccupied in my head, I overlook the subtle gifts of my garden.  A new week.  And new flowers. Balloon flowers.

In a few minutes I’ll go play with one of my favorite six-year-olds.  That’ll keep me present.  I wonder what new rules (to a game I thought I knew) he’ll teach me this morning.

There’s a busy week ahead.  Jumping from gardens (mine and the community one), to a cooking class, to book club, to new teacher interviews, to writing group…and those are the activities on my calendar.  I want to be completely present to what each adventure offers.

This is the coreopsis, beginning to bloom, as my cone flowers wind down.
