I was recently at a family event, and one of my cousin’s came up to me and said: I really like your blog! You should post more! Or something to that effect.
I woke up this morning with absolutely no intention of even looking at the blog. I’m going to the Queen City Ex with my family and my new boyfriend! Yet, here I am, sitting at my coffee table in my living room in the house that is my hermitage, blogging.
As a gardener, you sometimes have to make decisions with long-term perspective. Cut out the grass to make room for a flower bed, remove one form of diversity of ecosystem in order to create a more diversified section of the ecosystem. Diversity equals health, both in terms of plant material and wildlife.
But in the case of a blogger, and a busy person, it can make for an added encumbrance. I’m going to try to start blogging again! It’s late in the season, but I can still tell some of the stories of the experiences I’ve had in the garden over the past year; but I’m also going to be shifting what I was doing over at OFAJourney here as well to try and tighten it up a bit and make it a little easier. So on top of the gardening, there’s going to be some reflection and musings about my life as a Franciscan novice and seminary student. Nothing too heavy hopefully, but just enough to maybe spark some conversations in your own circles.
On that note! A lot has changed, mostly for the positive, and I can’t wait to start telling the story of the last year or so. So stay tuned!
