Relax into August

August. Leave the flower gardens on automatic pilot. They know where they are growing.

Go out to the vegetable garden and pick some tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, and squash. Pick the cucumbers and squash small and tender and sweet.

Then let life be. Just as it is.
Let the gardens be--just as they are.
Plop yourself down in nature, somewhere near a body of water--a lake, a pond, a river, a stream.
Before you pick up a book or your smart-phone, look around you.

Relax. Relax into summer.
Relax into the present moment.
