“…the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” – Carl Jung
And so it goes another moon cycle is at it’s height. With any luck you will have a good view of this months full moon. There’s just something so beautiful and grounding about a full moon. Although I am not being bathed by the glow of the full moon this evening I’m listening to the rain fall outside my window and marveling at the light show brought on by lightening in the clouds.
I love the rain especially when there’s lightening. It just seems so cleansing as though all the negativity is dispersing through it’s charges of lightening. revealing a lighter brighter world when it subsides.
One new method I tried this year was to start my seeds in empty toilet paper rolls instead of plastic containers. It seems to have worked well. The only thing left to see is whether or not the rolls will degrade now that the seedlings are tucked in the garden.
It is so awe inspiring to watch something grow. Like an every day miracle that we have the privilege of witnessing. From a tiny seed into organisms that provide us nourishment transferring the energy they’ve collected from the sun to us so that we can live. So beautifully intricate and complex but simple at the same time.
A spider lives inside my head
Who weaves a strange and wondrous web
Of silken threads and silver strings
To catch all sorts of flying things
Like crumbs of thought and bits of smiles
And specks of dried-up tears
And dust of dreams that catch and cling
For years and years and years…
