The most magic of moment this morning. While I was out watering a hummingbird approached. I thought she might want a drink so I stood still. Two feet away from me, she paused and looked at me. A foot closer, she paused again and looked at me again. She flew off and then came back to do the same thing two more times before she went back to sampling flowers in the garden.
This morning I picked the first two peaches and decided to see if the one that dropped would have a bruise as it ripened.
Last year the squirrels discovered the peaches. There are already a few chewed on peaches so I'm going to have watch closely and pick as soon as they start to turn color.
With the earlier sunsets I'm awake to see the solar lanterns come on. The skies have been lilac and apricot and I want to spin yarn to match.
Tonight though I am stitching down seams and thinking about curiosity and education. I've always believed that the purpose of educating children isn't so that they acquire knowledge but rather so that they can communicate with others and be able to research, to gather knowledge, to find connections or see where there are none. It's about the learning how to learn. And how to be part of a community.
