There’s a level of intensity during the season that might not exist in other careers. Timing is crucial. Perhaps it could be compared to making a movie. During the span of making a feature film there’s really nothing else you can think about but what’s next or needed on the set. It’s the true test of seeing how capable we are in “going with the flow” during the season. Resistance to things will destroy your day. Trust me. Many times we simply have no control.
Thus it’s that time in the season when reading becomes nearly impossible. We’ve been passing these selected books and other magazines between us out here at Buxton, sharing insight and new ideas. Trying on new recipes and considering the best time to start a new project or two. It’s fun when we all get on the same page about what we would like to build, create, and work towards. But trying to steal time to read right now is pushing the edge a bit further than desired this season. Let’s face it, I prefer that dip in the river over one more chapter. Who wouldn’t?
After a long day of chores and preparations spending time in the river is revitalizing. The other night I wasn’t the only one taking a dip at dusk. Momma and her fawn were quenching their thirst not too far downstream. There’s a lot of new life surrounding Buxton these days including new possibilities. In time it will be fun to watch some of these new insights manifest. The desire for more is unending!
