Friday the 13th, National Emergency declaration, corona virus spreading……seems like a good time to remember Nature is a good teacher.
Being outside, if you are able, is “social distancing” at its best.
It is cold here, dry, no rain in what use to be a rainy month, a few snow flurries today, temperatures in 20s and 30s at night. It’s been hard on the bumble bees, hiding, immobile in Rhododendron florets, the Rhodies themselves froze when it dove to 26 degrees Wed. morn. Yet, Nature will endure. Nature is tuned into her own cycles, impacted by the light, she responses to the cycles of the universe, the energy of something greater than herself. She is a survivor, no matter how we abuse her, no matter “climate change”, she will adapt. There will be losses, transitions, sadness, but she WILL survive.
We have much to learn from her. Now is a good time.
“Live quietly in the moment and see the beauty of all before you. The future will take care of itself……” Paramahansa Yogananda .
Rhododendron, lungwort, primrose blooms. Nettle, spearmint, lemon balm leaves.
