‘To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:’ – Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3, Verse 1.
This is the nearest I’ve been able to come up with for a quote that reflects something that’s been on my mind a lot lately: It has to do with not getting overly worried if the slugs or snails in the greenhouse plough a swathe through my rudbeckia seedlings. With not letting it get to me if things are, ah, a little behind in the garden, after what felt like a weeks-long stretch of rain and cold in the merry, merry month of May. With, in short, not seeing any one thing that’d be nice as the be-all and end-all of existence at that point in time.
Is this what people sometimes mean by the word ‘zen’, I wonder. Reaching a state where we push on from where we are without letting where we want to be rule over us like a tyrant.
It’s a thought, anyway. Even if one I’m still trying to fathom out along the way.
Ah well, back to the garden I go.Published in
