Today is Friday which the calendar designates as when to practice the Law of Detachment. It says allow yourself and others the freedom to be who they are. What a relief, self-improvement is such a drag.
The Resurrection Plant has been a lot of fun for us to watch. I poured off the water and placed a tiny crystal in the center so now we can watch it curl back up. Returning to its dormant state is proving to be a much slower process than resurrecting was. This phenomenon can probably be applied to a lot of things.
A pretty golden rose oil is in the works and what remains will be just right for a few quarts of rose petal infusion -- pour a quart of boiling water over about 3/4 cup of rose petals, then infuse for 45 minutes before straining -- tastes good, nourishes the heart and strengthens the ability to love yourself.
The last of the Gertrude Jekyll roses look yellow but are still very fragrant. The amount of petals I collected for drying last summer turned out to be just right -- I love it when that happens and nothing goes to waste.
Planning what and when to sow inside this spring -- I will be more organized than ever, I tell myself. If you have an iPad or tablet, I highly recommend the little Targus keyboard case I just got. The iPad tilts and swivels and folds forward or backward -- like a laptop only more flexible.
The political scene has reeled me in, I've been rallying and caucusing and donating small increments of money. The Law of Detachment says do not force solutions -- allow solutions to spontaneously emerge. Uncertainty is essential and is the path to freedom. Okay. Must remember this every day of the week.
