How Does Your Garden Grow?
It truly is spring. Outside and in, it seems.
Marcy and I have been spending a lot of time with Ideas lately. Dreaming, imagining, making lists, giggling, making more lists.
My apple green desk is covered in little slips at the moment.
As we quickly approach Beltane (May 1st), I know we will need to transition from Dreaming to Doing. Beltane is a fire festival, full of energy, marking the beginning of the growing season.
Here at our house, we placed the first seeds in the ground a week ago, so by the time of this festival, we should have some very tiny greens starting.
The lists on my desk are also tiny seeds in need of sun, rain, care, and time. Like with growing your own vegetables, there is a precarious and precious balance between human intervention and allowing things to be.
This is where I tend to get stuck.
How about you? Where in the creative process do you tend to slow down or stop? When is it most likely that your garden will be overcome with weeds?
