So much time sitting in front of a screen these last weeks. Not really wanting it to be that way as the season turns toward spring. Doesn't look like spring but the woodpeckers are sending messages in code...it's coming. So I guess I am frantically trying to get everything settled here at WordPress, trying to make it home so it will be more effortless. Familiar.
We learn it over and over. We can't have it just one way.
Everything is all mixed up . Changing. In pieces. And we try to hold it together. Hold it, at least. Weigh it. Balance it. Try to share it maybe, how it might go... be an example of going. Any kind of going. Because it is useful for us to know that many ways. That there can be so many ways.
That's life, going. How small my going seems in these awful days. How big that can become for others. Just going. Still it's ok. Sempathetic Evolution. Going together.
I have a perennial crop of scallions which began the same way as yours. In Hawaii, they bloom occasionally, and reseed themselves, or the seeds can be planted elsewhere or given away. Free food of this kind is an inspiration to me, and a reminder that where there is life, there can always be more life.
yes, i feel such joy in this simple yet not so simple thing.
And we learn it “over and over”
being reminded seems a part of life.
Look at all those connecting lines !!!
Bonding with your piece of earth this year, I love it. Below the surface, it’s already alive, it’s just waking up layer by layer.
yeah, you can always feel it
Love the bones of that old sky! 🙂
really quite a scribble
ha, moving and change, seems to be in the air; I like the gathering of all the images on your opening page….and just before dinner I pin-skewered an avocado stone in yet another attempt at root-shooting (i’m making up words here) it now sits beside my catkin laden willow branch which has already sprouted numerous roots, I hope the avocado looks and learns;-)
i think it’s in our nature to not give up, love to you
I found another much faster way to sprout the avocado and it worked really well. wash it, soak it in a jar of water for a day or so then wrap it in wet paper towels and put it in a covered jar for a week or so. I sprouted 3 at once, took about a week ( just keep checking…) then I planted them. worked so much better than the skewering
have followed advice immediately, fingers crossed x
to be resilient as a scallion! how jars on a window sill become like stained glass. always love seeing (as well as hearing) your view. x
i love jars
it’s the time of year where i love just listening to the birds.
Where winter is long and Spring so anticipated, a little green growing on the windowsill is medicine.
As you sent this, 1 million ( guessing) redwing blackbirds landed in a nearby tree, what a chatter. They are so excited.

Snow is gone but stormy here this morning, rain and wind, dark gray skies…going through seed packets and thinking about what I might want/need. At some point I will go out and sprinkle poppy seeds here and there. Been thinking a lot about how we go…
Probably a big part of it instinct.
War in Ukraine is scary, terrible and totally unnecessary! This is so close…two hours flight from Berlin.
So good to keep sketching and stitching. I go crazy by watching the news! Thank you Jude, for your food for creative thoughts.
Kind wishes to all of you, eva
Yes, so close to you and because of media, now so close to us all. Be safe…
So scary Eva! So sad! another war…
Will keep you in my thoughts Eva. ❤️
Beautiful sky 💙
Love that phrase about the woodpeckers sending coded messages regarding the coming of spring. So well put!
gosh I can listen to that drumming forever, how it echoes through the forest,,,
I’m seeing this beautiful cloudy blue cloth screen cover with the embroidered word “ahhhhhh!” to adorn your screen and then you racing off outdoors to plant scallions. 🌱🌸🐞
the snow is melting a bit today!
i’ve got a table full of separated pieces of paper, notes, as i try to “get it together” and i’ll never ever be together. i like the sketchy sky. and belated happy birthday.
Form is temporary, ha! A glimpse perhaps?
loose, I love it…
The good news is you’re getting yourself organized online before the nice weather shows up. You most definitely won’t want to be stuck behind that screen in a few weeks!
That sky is so beautiful! Taking a moment to notice that is what life is really all about.
yeah this growing season is special for me. I need the really deep connection to this piece of earth
Oh…the resilient scallion.
In pieces, then patchworked back together again…over and over, time after time, while there are humans…and Nature. I feel small.
The gift of a sketchy sky.
so small lately, but the disappearing is an important part of IT
How do you use your iron water? I keep thinking about it after looking at your photos today. Take care, Jude.
I use it simply to react to tannin. but more later.
Beautiful sky. I see a small face, center just above the wires. Hello🙋♀️ The slow emergence of Spring reminds me to slowly emerge as well. Not quite ready for peopling yet. Soon.
peopling is always slow for me
