The wind is from the east this morning.
Once in awhile a gust from the south turns my neighbor's rooster.
Wind from the east means rain could come.

I walked early just in case.
I like to walk in the rain but the camera needs to stay dry.

As I walked past my neighbor's garden I was reminded how I chop wood and carry water. Where ever I am in life I still have chores.
I need to thin the sunflower seedlings.

I thought about the properties of subtraction. While I walked I realized how my sub-conscience has been influenced. I have worked hard not to lose. To know where the keys are. Loss has always meant pain of some sort.
As I walk my way to slim and trim, fit as a fiddle, I am subtracting what I do not need. I am using stored energy.
I am subtracting.
Practical math in action.

Back home I checked the seedlings. They do need thinning.

I see the deer have begun the job.
Perhaps it would be best for me to leave the extra seedlings for deer food.
Maybe some will survive for flowering.
There are other subtraction problems to solve.

Perhaps I could rest a spell and walk again.

Dear Sherry,

This is a beautiful and thoughtful essay.

I enjoy reading your thoughts as you walk along.

I enjoy release, real-ease.

Consciousness grows toward what one holds true. Letting go of what no longer serves us is a good reminder.

Today I shall let go of one thing that no longer serves me.

In Spirit and Grace,

Dear Sprite,
I like "real-ease".
Letting go of what no longer serves is a gentle way of manifesting our true selves.
Thank you for walking with me every day.
Walking in wellness.
Walking with ease,
