There is a Chinese curse which says “May he live in interesting times.” Like it or not, we are living in interesting times, times of uncertainty; but they also can be the most creative of any time we have available to us. We just need to allow them to be. As Louise Hay, one of my favorite authors, states "The point of power is always in the present moment." Let us all live this now.
If I am willing to admit it, winter has become a respite for me in some respects. There is no pressure to wake up first thing and go to the garden. I can lollygag in my pajamas with a cup of tea and “Instagram.” I can appreciate what the garden brings without the need to fix, mind or tend. I can enjoy the memory. I can find new inspiration.
