Thinning and sipping

I’ve been out thinning radishes with a plan to eat the greens. Also, cutting back the Tulsi buds and weeding out some chamomile. Adding a stalk of bee balm for a quart of this delicious fresh tea.

I love to dine on what I used to throw out! I’m certain each plant has a gift for us. Just as each person in our lives has a gift for us.

Moving beyond the end goals and enjoying the process is a good practice for me; to slowly savor life. To enjoy people as fully human and not just functionaries — the checkout person, the FedEx carrier, the sales call.

I imagine how rich life will be when we value all gifts.
