Right now, I’m savoring the moments.
This fleeting season that rips past me like a cyclone whirls through the sky.
It seems that every day there’s a choice to be made.
For as I’ve learned time and time again, saying yes to one thing means saying no to another.
In exchange for crisp and fermented radish pods, I stood still to watch a twinkle in my little one’s eye’s as he stood daydreaming of ramps so high.
Or the beet and radish tops that needed to be whirled into savory pesto,
well, I fed them to the chickens and instead focused my heart on a shadow that, in the turn of a corner, would soon be shaped much differently.
There’s overgrown weeds to be pulled, crinkled clothes to be folded, but this summer, this season in life, is one.
So for a moment, we slow down.
To be a part of something much bigger than ourselves, but of a community that relies on the gentle touch of one another.
To stop and say hi… take in a conversation that means neither this nor that but warms a spirit and wakes one’s soul.
Yes, there are homeschool lessons to be planned, a fall garden to be started, and a harvest to kept, but for one moment, for one season…
I chose now.
