at the end of a new road

i never thought that between my last post and now there would be so much distance of time. i am sitting by the window and soft music is playing as i desperately try to get this post written, my computer barely working typad and cursor. i have many photographs to share with you but getting to them has been tough. i have used instagram to document the things i have seen and done and find myself neglected my true love the camera that is going to change i promise you, i promise myself.

Last week i had visitors the house filled to rim with people i care about, doing the things i love. i will be sharing more of it soon. this week i am taking time to get my garden back to a manageable state, it being small i think i should have it done my the end of tomorrow. i am writing this now knowing that in a few minutes after i publish this i will grab my sun hat, muck boots and make my way to the fields to resurrect a new horse pasture, it will be long but i will not stop till it is done. in this time my thinking becomes clear as my body works hard burning all extra energy and the some that has been bottled up.

i will be traveling a lot in the august and september and yesterday i thought about how the list i made of what i was going to do when i moved to the hill was put in mental drawer and this week i have decided to bring it out. simple things like, nap in the hammock, foraging greens i had not thought off, meditate in it's true form, make jam and walk till my legs hurt or my belly feels hunger. i plan on doing these things, even though more guest are do to come. for now i will leave you with these ( okay) images i took after i dropped aran and the kids at the airport, we left the house at four am in the cool rain when i came upon this road the rain stopped and the sun came and just life that my inner reset button was pressed and inspiration drove me all the way home...

* i have eaten my weight in blueberries and hoping to do that again this week along with the goods from my garden.

Oh, such beauty, the prettiest places open up to you. I picture you, muck boots and sunhat in the field, feeling at ease. You were missed. I love the title of this post it seems to speak for so much more…. Dear Nadia, thank you for reminding me of my own list. May I borrow this from you – walk till my legs hurt?

Glad you found time. It's always the hardest part, juggling time and family and priorities. But glad you had wonderful guests and you're eating your share of fresh blueberries. But never forget about the nap in the hammock. It is the great equalizer.

That second image is magic. I can't wait to hear about your visit with the girls! Enjoy your time outside- I am doing the same today as I have long neglected the outdoors and the gardens.
