'Tis the season for doing a lot of heavy work in the garden: spreading compost/mulch on the beds; refreshing the paths with a new layer of wood chips; spreading a rough mulch along the edges of the woods to even out borders; raking, shoveling, turning the vegetable garden over.

The mind plans. The mind gives the orders. The body doesn't jump-to as fast as it used to. The body is stretching out the kinks in its lower back and wants to take a break. The mind is thinking of the future. A garden group will be visiting in less than 3 weeks. If the mind could, it would whip the body until the body did the will of the mind.

Contemplate this relationship between body and mind while you are in the garden today.
What do you see?
