In planning on-farm events, campouts, workshops, dinners, and now a retreat, I’m learning so much. Today I’m settling into the lesson that after all the planning, promoting, preparing, creative designing, photography, writing, networking, sharing, calling, emailing, talking to random strangers, flyer hanging, more promoting, ruminating, and even dreaming in the wee hours, after all of that, whoever is supposed to be here will be here. I have to trust the Universe that these matters will be ironed out apart from all of my Capricorn striving. Whoever is supposed to be here will be here. Oh, and lesson number one is Mother Nature is the boss. She whips up the weather, we just follow her lead, so I strive to stay in her favor. So I give gratitude for the loveliness in a handful of flowers.
