This morning, when I went outside, there were wonderful pink blossoms on my Texas Sage attended by many bees. It is still unbearably hot, but here are systems in Nature that support one another. It made me feel that all is in order, that the presence of bees and blossoms, complimenting one another in Nature, symbolizes our ability to return to community. I love the concept of Transition Towns, where all have a voice. My personal feeling is that we all are precious. Our culture does not celebrate that fact, but when we search for it, we can find all kinds of ways to celebrate one another. As I change and expand my direction, I am finding that the Universe is sending out blossoms and bees to encourage me. I, too, am connecting with the people who can most benefit from my services. I, too, am receiving in proportion as I give.
After a long absence, I returned to my computer lesson today. I had a long list of questions, two and one-half pages. I received such excellent help that we actually got through all of them. I have been working on my music reading products. Along with that, I am learning how to list them on my web pages. As I gain more confidence and figure out the most effective way to present them, it is exhilerating to find a way to reach out to more and more people. An order is emerging in listing the products, pages and links. It has its own quiet excitement. It is not as exciting as developing them, but it has its’ own place in the structure of my business. I like feeling this aspect of my business.
Back and forth to Los Angeles, California for a week of training for my husband. It was so interesting seeing the landscape change in big ways as we drove. On the way back, I took photographs every thirty minutes or so. Visiting the Los Angeles Botanical Garden (Australia and Madagascar areas), Flagstaff Arboretum, and Lubbock Arboretum has given me a new perspective on drought tolerant plants and more celebration of natural settings. The Dallas Arboretum is a show garden year round. I feel I can accomplish a different kind of setting in my own yard as I fill it with native and drought tolerant plants. I purchased seed packets for flowering plants that are typical of the Southwest. I will see if they will grow in my Texas Neighborhood Botanical Garden.
