Today I spent the crisp fall morning
picking chanterelles in the nearby coastal forest.
I took my daughter-in-law to my "secret conching grounds."
She was thrilled and we had a wonderful time in the woods!
It's good to take time to live and breathe.
It reminds me of being on the Camino - not rushing to be anywhere -
Isn't that what life is all about?
Not rush hour.
Not new clothes or the latest toy.
spending time with family and friends,
I am reading a little book by Waverly Fitzgerald
called "Slow Time."
In it, I found this gem today.
I thought I'd share it:
"We have forgotten that our only goal is to live
and that we live each day
and that at every hour of the day
we are reaching our true goal if we are living ...
The days are fruits and our role is to eat them."
-Jean Giono, Fullness of Days
