I needed some time to BE so I asked my local farmer J. Darby if I could come out to the farm and:
1. No one talk to me.
2. Be given an Accomplishable Goal with a beginning and an end.
3. That this Accomplishable Goal would have immediate results.
Pretty much I was asking for the opposite of Parenting.
I showed up and J. Darby showed me this:
Which after hours and some sweat and a rake and some ant bites and sore fingers, I turned into this:

Seriously though, I so hope that you have equivalent wonderfulness and order and beginnings and ends like I did today. It does wonders.
