Summer is flitting on by and I believe I have spent this entire season trying to “catch a tiger by the tail” as that expression goes. I feel like I’ve flitted from one work project or house disaster to another, pausing way too long before moving on. I feel a little like this beautiful Tiger Swallowtail butterfly.
Back in the day, circa late 60s perhaps …
… I’d whine about chores like dusting or pulling weeds that I’d have to do while on Summer vacation from school. My parents said “one day you’ll wish life was so simple” and, of course, I thought they didn’t know diddly-squat. Besides, that was eons before computers were ever invented. My latest conundrum is my work computer which had repeated fails yesterday … the fact that I was trying to churn out our invoices made no never-mind to that equipment. It rebelled, just like I did (mostly inwardly) about those silly Summer chores.
With all the mishaps and calamities here at the house and the workplace, at least I’ve gotten out to smell the roses.
Thank goodness for that.
I’ve tread those walking trails, feeling a trifle wilted, while wondering how those tropical flowers stay so perky?
But, I kept on walking, because I’d much rather bee among the flowers and out in nature, than at the end of the keyboard. I always made the time to walk, despite being as busy as a bee.
That’s because out in nature is where you’ll find peace and you will feel peace from within.
But, right now I am at home …
… hunkered down, writing this post, while I await someone to reboot my computer at work. I can’t reach that far away because my arms are not 13 miles/20 kilometers long.
Truthfully I’d rather be rebooting my brain, albeit in this soggy sauna bath outside.
