I spent a long time watching the sunrise today; from dark to day. Incredible color... so soft and flowing in time. These moments this morning are helping me. I have to change my life. I don't know how yet. Anyway the doctor and the torn shoulder have forced me to look at my life directions. The deal for me is that I have to do 6 weeks of guided physical therapy with daily home exercise to restore my shoulder. I can't do my farming like I thought I would even after 6weeks of therapy. So maybe the 'soft and flowing' of the sunrise can help me today. Maybe I can change in a soft and flowing way too. Maybe.....
So today I can do a few things. The meat chickens were processed last week. It was sad to put them in cages but I know we could not have such good food without them. We pick them up today-wrapped and frozen real food. Most are sold already and I will send out some notes to other past customers to see if they want to order again. The other good thing here is that I am not carrying buckets of water twice a day and lifting 50lb bags of feed and bales of bedding. So that daily strain wont be present in my schedule. I start therapy and I will know a lot about what and how this will work.
In the garden the drought is back. We had our last good rains two weeks ago. The ground is dust again. So I am gathering and ending sections of the gardens. The seasons are moving on. It is hot now and soon the freezes will be here so I will be getting ready to have the gardens getting ready for winter and next year. It is that time. I bet there are a lot of one-armed gardeners and 'soft and flowing' gardeners.
