Yesterday I set up my new composter and planned lots of veggies for dinner so I would have treats for it, but it seems to need a lot of filling in the moment, and pine needles are not suggested which is a good deal of my lawn waste so I am open to any suggestions on composting. I have meant to do it for years and now I am set up with a rotating bin filled with the suggested peat moss, and a liquid solution and veggies and lawn clippings. I feel like there is something else I should offer to this new green God/Goddess on my deck. I have no idea how long before soil gold will emerge from the slot. Meanwhile I add goodies and turn the bin. It is fun and I await my reward.
I just read a book by Henri J. M. Nouwen, called The Inner Voice of Love. It is about his "Journey Through Anguish to Freedom." He suggests one reads just a page or two at a time, and wherever one wants to read in the book. I, however, read straight through, intrigued. I think, however, it is how Jane and I also envision the use of our book. We feel we are getting closer to conclusion and I look forward to moving on through my section of it today. I feel quite productive this morning and essential phone calls are already made and crossed off my list.
A joyful spring day to All!
