Am I there yet?
Early spring, and the work piles on. But, it is as joyful as it is hectic. Hectic because of the kittens – now almost 8 months old – joyful because it’s spring. Gardening season has begun, slowly in fits and starts, but moving forward all the same. In between planning multiple spring hiking trips (one with son, one with spouse, one alone), leash-training the kittens to the outside world, prepping garden beds, and beginning long-planned projects here at home, I’ve found time to resume long walks throughout neighborhoods near and not-so-near. And here is what I’ve seen.
Among the residue of winter are beautiful signs of life. But I look at my garden and wonder if it will ever be complete. Like most aspects of life, there is always more to do – something needs completion, places need visiting, sights need to be seen. Will I ever get there? Probably not. And that’s a big part of the fun of life.
