{imagine.create.become} day 10

Nothing is worth more than this day.- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

It’s been raining for the past 24 hours + here. The rain has been causing a bit of flooding in the fields, and Kettle Creek has overflowed its banks once again. It’s the second time this winter, in fact, that I have seen it flood onto the fields. I like the rain, though I am sad to see the snow go. The rain is washing the dirt and debris from the roads and sidewalks, and is helping to make way for the new growth set to happen. I have been thinking today about how these days feel like the land is hold its breath (along with me too it) waiting to begin. It is easy to start thinking about the future, get caught up in possibility or hung up on the past… I think the real challenge is to stay present, and as the quote suggests, appreciate today. That is where I found my inspiration… in today. In the rain, in the moment, right now – my arms are filled with raindrops.

    I wanted you to know I do read this and never comment (flunk on my part)… but wanted to stop by and send you my congratulations on your work, which is so stellar.

    So while looking for your blog I stopped on the WordPress’ front landing page and read a very good account of Japan by a good writer with humour. http://amblerangel.wordpress.com/2011/03/11/were-being-shaken-and-stirred-in-japan/ She said it was ok to share it. I laughed and was so grateful that I stumbled on it. Have a great weekend! k
