TransformationsI have been as busy, as always, lately. Summer may be winding down, but the chore list certainly is not. I can feel that not quite so hot undercurrent in the air, the slight lessening of humidity, that is an indicator, at least to the native Floridian, that autumn approaches. It is not anything the tourist or casual onlooker would ever notice. But summer is drifting towards its sizzling finale nevertheless, to be replaced by the wildly uncertain season of fall which may carry more than a hint at the chill of winter one day, only to be scorchingly hot the next. It is a tumultuously uncertain time of year here. We still must remain on our guard lest a late season tropical storm or hurricane form off the coast, but we know that the Wet season and our omnipresent afternoon thunder showers will soon give way to drier, and some years, even arid, days.
While in many parts of the country gardeners race the cyclical clock to get a cool season crop finished before winter's blast, we have the opportunity to plant a second garden now. Once the heat lets up we still have ample time to plant many things that would be considered summer crops elsewhere. To that end there are flats of herb and vegetable seedlings out on the Garden House porch, as well as trays of cuttings to be potted up or put in the garden. These chores are calling even now, and I hope to get much done before the end of the week.

It is perhaps neither as profound or as Spiritual as the inspirational quotes that I usually pin are, but it is so elegantly true, hits so close to home, that I resonated with it. So just perhaps, there is a Spiritual element to it. I can never do all that I wish too, but I should do what I can with joy, pleasure and flair. It is my Life— that makes it personal, so certainly I have a choice as to how I approach it and how I experience it. Time to smile and do It with an open, accepting heart.I realized this week that I just cannot do it all. So I will choose to do what I can fabulously. --Clinton Kelly Quote
