Whether weeding, reading, or feeding the chickens, not paying the slightest attention to what's just outside my bubble of being, I sometimes feel as if I'm going nowhere. And sometimes feel as if I can't keep up in any single way.
Actually, if I think on the simplest level, I am spinning on the Earth's axis at about 1000 miles per hour. As a speck on this big blue marble I am circling the sun at 66, 000 miles per hour. And that's just the beginning. If you are interested in the specifics, there is a good link here.
But seriously, many days I slip into bed and think about all that still fills my "to do" list and wonder just what I've done all day. Not taking the time to post even the simplest of the joys I feel here on our ridge top meadow seems such a lost opportunity.
I am blessed to be living during a time when technology allows me to spend moments each day looking through your windows whether they be across town, across the country, or on the other side of the world. Each of you in your own dear ways bring me comfort, encouragement, joy. Today I reach out and thank each of you.
