Deep peace of the quiet earth to you. 

The hard things.

November 15, 2018


I don't think it's a new lesson, this realization that anticipation will kill us in the end. Contemplating the next thing, the hard thing, the long season, the array of chores, the far-off bedtime, is infinitely more difficult than doing the hard thing, waking every winter morning, and working or resting as the moment dictates until we are rewarded with sleep. 


But then, I'm not sure that's a lesson we learn, but one we live and of which we remind ourselves on our better days.
