This solstice time when we are returning to the light is, for me, a time to insure that I am feeling balanced. That my personal equilibrium is steadfast. That the different elements in my life are in correct proportions. That I am in a steady and stable position in all aspects of my life. That I have evaluated the value of different areas of my life and they are being honored appropriately.
Take a look at the definitions provided, via Webster, above and see if you can take some time to assess how they reflect in your life. Then let us all celebrate the return of the light.
Lee–your blog is terrific, and has inspired me to return to blogging for the pure pleasure of writing, and not for hit count or SEO.
In 2013, I toured an organic farm on the northern part of Kauai with a camera crew I brought from Dallas and a reporter from New York. We were loosely affiliated with the Atooi group at that time. I remember the farm had resident interns. I don’t think it was your place, but it looks so similar! It must be one of your neighbors…maybe Tim O’Connor?
At any rate, our middle son is graduating from high school in May and has an encyclopedic knowledge of and passion for plants. He needs some real world experience, in my opinion, and some direction. We are planning to bring him to Kauai toward the end of May to introduce him to the best plants and the best garden island and the most amazing farmers in the world. (I am thinking of making his return ticket refundable in case he falls in love and wants to stay for awhile…)
If you have any pointers I might extend to our son, please let me know. I do plan on showing him the north side first, then going down to Waimea to survey the devastation and desertification caused by the R&D down there. I was poisoned while at dinner there one night and fled back to the north just to be able to breathe and think clearly. I don’t know how the residents live in that. Is the battle for the soul of the island still raging?
I look forward to making your acquaintance–virtually, and perhaps in person as well!
Blessings to you, your family, your blog, and your farm.
Thank you for your lovely note, Priscilla.
Do get in touch when you are here this spring.
In warm aloha, Lee
