Fay Fisher gave me a beautiful quote today. We were wandering around the garden expo and I wrote it on a gas receipt.
“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.”
I felt my snowflake melt. All those things I wanted to do. All those things I wish I hadn’t done. Suddenly, I feel an urgency to start over. A great place to start is in the garden. Now, to go pull some weeds…literally and figuratively. The lenten season is a great time to do it.
