It appears we are making progress on the change of the seasons. I know it always seems like things should go faster. And we are flummoxed (great word Felipé) by the setbacks, the late winter snows for instance. But there are leaves unfurling in the woods behind the house. The crocuses are out, white, purple and yellow. Daffodils coming next.
My experimental winter garden that I planted in October looks like mostly a disaster except for a certain spinach that is showing some possibility of early eating. I still haven’t sent for my corn seedwhat is the hangup? The soil in general is drier than usual which should translate to warmer than usual. Ah, maybe I can get the tiller in there and get started soon.
I am putting a lot of hope in the corn to feed you all when you are here for the First Great Caminoheads Get-Together. I keep messing with the name. What do you think? OK, that is August 23rd through the 26th here at Raven Ranch. And you are all invited to come for a little while or the whole shebang. We need to start some serious planning says Cris our South American Caminoheads Bureau Chief or SACBC. This was her idea in the first place as I remember.
Here is the quote from Everyday Camino With Annie: “I am here for my God to reveal what was said in the beginning.” from Genesis by Rickie Byers and Michael Beckwith. There is a lovely Camino story as usual after this in Annie’s Day 6 but somehow we are trying to add to that or perhaps take a slightly different angle. So, what to say?
I find that an incredibly powerful quote. Anything from Genesis takes me back to the beginning of things to God’s blueprint of the Universe even before the reality of it. Here we see mankind or us or me being an active part of the plan. We are the revealers it appears. What a job!
Off to town to shop at the IGA. Tuesday is 10% off for people with gray hair and white hair in my case. That isn’t for wine though, just for food stuffs like a baguette and olive oyl.
You guys are the best, love of course, Felipé.
