Benny and I had a superb walk around our three mile block this evening. Each day since 4/16 I have been coming back and recording what is blooming, both on the walkabout and here on the farm in journal. I plan on using this data and accompanying photographs to put together a a book that is both autobiographical and in the present moment, season by season, across one year. A peaceful and ambitious projecct that forces me to pay attention daily, as well as write and photograph. All three provide joy and promote defusion from negative thoughts.
