Finding Peace Beyond the City on April 29/2024

Good Morning: “In the hustle and bustle of city life, it’s easy to forget what truly matters. But out here in the country where my wife and I live, We found that it’s the little things that make life rich.”

It’s a rainy morning here, waking up in cottage country. Now, I’m not gonna lie, rain can be a double-edged sword. Too much of it, and we’re dealing with flooded fields and soggy boots. But when it comes in just the right amount, it’s a game-changer. It saves us from hauling out the pails and spending hours watering our plants and crops. Instead, we get to sit back and watch as Mother Nature does her thing, nourishing the earth in her own sweet time. And yes, as I have occasionally said, she over does it, at least through human eyes.

Yesterday, I spent the whole day in my workshop, working away at a new bench I’m putting together. It’s coming along nicely, if I do say so myself. With a bit of luck and elbow grease today, I should have her finished up just in time: as the rain’s been pouring down outside, but I ain’t minding it one bit, as it gives me an excuse to tinker away indoors. And it looks like it’ll clear up soon, which suits me fine, as my little woman has been eager to place that bench by our new fishpond. Saying it’ll be a fine spot to sit and enjoy a drink or two, taking in the fruits of our labor, so to speak.

I’ve always believed there’s a special satisfaction in making something with your own two hands. When you can’t buy what you want, well, you roll up your sleeves and get to work. There’s pride in seeing something you’ve crafted with care sitting in your own backyard. It’s been that way all my life.

Wisdom I have learned: “In the hustle and bustle of city life, folks are always in a rush, chasin’ after this and that. But out here in the country, we take things slow. We know that good things take time to grow… whether it’s a crop in the field or a friendship that spans generations. It’s a lesson I’ve learned time and time again: patience ain’t just a virtue, it’s a way of life.”

With that I am off for a bowl of cereal that my lovely wife is making for me and will then get to work.

You all have a great day, and I will leave you with this: “In my years working the land, I’ve learned that patience is not just a virtue… it’s a way of life. The earth moves at its own pace, and it’s our job to listen, to watch, and to wait for the right moment to sow the seeds of tomorrow.”
