Written during a waxing moon in the sign of Virgo on a day ruled by Jupiter
It is very still here today. After watching the news this morning, I feel incredibly fortunate and grateful for this stillness.
It's very hard to believe that tomorrow is the first harvest. Without our local supplier of the season's fruits and vegetables I don't feel like I have been "in tune" with the season, and as a result time has slipped by without notice, without a nod to strawberries, blueberries and peaches. But things are changing and we are purposely adjusting our schedules, searching out new options, ways to better manage time and money, and the universe has been on board, offering opportunities and situations towards that end. We are starting to see our own first harvest.
Maybe tomorrow I will take a drive to find some local blueberries and make a pie in honor of the "first fruits." Typically August 1 is a celebration of the grain harvest, but I like to go with the flow of the land on which I live. With the delays of the season here this year, the blueberries are a bit late, but in plenty of time to join the celebration.
I'm hoping to get some time to add to the additional pages of this blog today, but there are chores that require my attention first.
Have a great day,
