rest for the weary and more questions...
Today I did what I was told...not that I had had any choice...I slept in and under the quilt with my puppy and my little old cat. Grilled cheese and tomato soup for dinner and then a quiet evening. I spent very little time on the computer and most of my "up moments" trying to work on the large piece I want to have photographed next week. The quiet slow cloth stitching was soothing and when my vision would blur and act up I would stop and do small household things to rest my body. I have so much to do ...I can not afford to lose time...but the reality I am moving as fast as I can.
Earth Day was so beautiful here and it was so curious to see how 40 years seemed to fly by and we still have so much to learn. I was checking in on another blog and read a favorite quote from one of my professors in my undergraduate studies ..."The Earth is what we all have in common." ...Wendell Berry. He was a very generous gentle teacher and we sat around a very old library table during our class and I always left with gentle thoughts and yet more questions. He is an amazing poet in touch with the human spirit. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
