thinking of family
just finished sowing cucumber and summer squash seeds and thought i'd take a short break. the weather is beautiful---sunny, warm, a slight breeze through the wind chime. i'm lucky. very. i don't know how it all happened but i'm grateful. i live in a beautiful place with an amazing person. my life is quiet and self-paced. i have a lot of time to think and reflect and i often think of family (to me family is everyone i care for---related or not). a big part of why i like to garden is being able to grow good food and feed the people i care about. i probably think most about the person who's fed me the most in my life and how i'd like to do the same for her now that i can. i love living where i do---the only thing i don't like about it is not seeing my family very often. i get to missing them sometimes---and even though i'm grown i especially miss my mama.
