Life has made a few U-turns with this Covid: Disruptions to family life and friendships have become the norm.
Mother Nature has taken the whip and cracked it several times. Weather has been hot, dry, cold, wet. Storms abound and each time rain appears, Mother Nature uses it to wash the world with her healing touch.
She does not see the false divisions we have set up. She has her own clock and she keeps time with it. To her, all that matters are the 4 seasons and the preparation for each.
Trees follow her and know exactly when to flower or drop their leaves. Underground the roots ready themselves for when they must send up new shoots.
We as humans, need things to be much clearer defined so we have split time in seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years. We studiously follow our plans for each minute, each day and stupidly we put a false designation to our year end and we caper around like idiots welcoming in a new year – just another time span for Mother Nature. We continue with New Year’s resolutions which will be shed a few days, weeks or months into the New Year.
I prefer to set resolutions by the day but look at them as aims and ambitions for that day.
