The wise see wishes

No one, not one of us knows for certain what lies ahead. We move in uncertain times; the future is unknown.
Right here, though, right now, the sun shines warm, the green of Spring delights the eye, and small pleasures abound for those with eyes to see.
Be still, for the magic of each day is found in stillness and in quiet wonders. Tomorrow will come, whether we’ve felt the joy in this moment or not.
We are here; we are now. UniverseCheck.
I spent this early Spring afternoon with my hands in the soil. I knelt and methodically weeded and loosened the winter-packed earth. Then, carefully smoothed the surface and measured out my rows and gently settled the tiny seeds, alternating and repeating double rows of lettuce, spinach, and carrots. The sun warmed my back; the breeze still blew with a chill. The earth released the scent of hope.
