I have just arrived home from a 10,000+ mile journey to carry our circle work further into Europe. We were royally hosted by our Belgium, German, and Austrian friends as we worked together to offer numerous workshops and gatherings that ultimately were attended by circle carriers from 14 European countries. It was an extraordinary journey. I will write more about it later.
Today I am simply happy to be home on this lovely piece of earth we are privileged to care for. During the month of my October absence, the garden was doing its steadfast thing.
The carefully planted green cover crop was only seeds in the ground when I left. Now it is ready to be turned over to add its nutrients to the soil.
Being gone such a long time, I return home to endless piles of mail, unreturned phone calls, and office details. They can wait. For now I rejoice in the miracle that is the earth—patiently offering its abundance, if we stop to notice.
