In my attempts on our 1/10 acre in town, there have been many failures and successes . Fortunately, success (or mostly failure redefined!) always out-weighed the rest.
When anxiety and doubt creep in and create a sort of unsettling impatience, we often need to remember that a relaxed pace -- slow and steady -- wins the race in the end.
Like the sewer-line work, we can get some major things done if we do them inch by inch -- and then time will pass, things grow in thick and tall, other distractions befall, until we fairly nearly forget what came before...
So it is good to pause every once in awhile and take a look back and see how far we'e come. This blog was meant to help with that and with getting things done. Not quite sure how that all worked! Mostly I've just enjoyed your company in the comments because it helped to keep from feeling so all alone on this odd little path. So many thanks to each of you!
Despite my fears of falling to the abyss, will be taking a break now, unplugging, and immersing myself in all things offline. That's the next test. To see if that is even possible. As Nature is out there calling my name!
