The days are lengthening, next weekend we’ll put the clocks forward . Spring is definitely here. The daffodils are in bloom, the leaves of wild garlic have suddenly lined woodland paths and now is the time to prepare the vegetable plots for sowing and planting.
In the garden we can feel positive; life goes on in the natural world regardless of the mess humans are making of things.
Acceptance is one of the hardest lessons we have to learn. It doesn’t get easier as the years pass by and as we go though life, supposedly getting older and wiser, we need to keep reminding ourselves to do what we can , when we can and make the most of the ‘now’.
Carpe Diem but don’t expect life to be a bowl of cherries. It isn’t, and there are some things we can’t change. We have to accept that we can only strive to be aware, be conscious of what we can do to make ourselves and our world as good as it can be. We can’t afford to be complacent, to stop questioning, to stop hoping that things will get better.
Sometimes it’s hard to be positive.
How Many More?
spring is here
a time for sowing seeds
a time for new growth
yet we see death
how many more
for the grim reaper
before summer comes?
