Entering into Relationship

When I entered into relationship with the bees on my land, the land responded. The land flourished for two reasons; I planted more flowers and herbs and the land now had a partner, not just a gardener. The first reason is easier to explain. I wanted more food for my bees, plus I love gardening…

The Time In Between

I hold my own breath, counting the time in between his breaths; 17, 18, 19 and then a soft breath, followed by a crescendo and then decrescendo of breaths before another gap. Nine breaths to be exact. The first and last are almost imperceptible, but they count. I figure it was such a struggle for…

Balanced Scales

The full moon is shining brightly.  In my calendar, it is Balancing Moon and it certainly feels as if things that have needed balancing, are finally coming to a place of equilibrium.  Equal; balanced.  Libra; scales.  It does make sense that the constellation of the zodiac representing balance, is the only one depicted by an…
