Are you delighted with your essence?
It seems to me that essence is almost the opposite of what we are. We seem to be more of the composite of all the experiences and choices of our existence, as modulated by all the genetic and cultural factors that predate our personal experience of being.
And that aside, yes – I have accepted who and what I am, and in that, I am aware that we are all potentially unlimited creative beings. The only limits we have are those we have accepted (consciously or unconsciously). We can transcend anything, with the help of appropriate technology.
Yep – all the north facing walls are stacked high with firewood.
Had quite a heavy snowfall on the mountains last week, which have about 4,000 ft of white stuff on their tops at present.
This has been the summer without a summer for us.
We’ve had rain and icy southerly winds every few days – no real summer weather.
All the things I was planning to do when it dried out this summer remain undone – it just hasn’t got dry all summer. The farmers are all loving it – more grass growth than anyone can remember, some have made three lots of silage. All are expecting a hard winter.
There are massive flocks of sparrows around the house – many hundreds.
In the last southerly storm last week there were over 20 dead fledgling sparrows on the roadside beside our place. I think it is their third brood for the summer – hence the population explosion. Likely to be a lot of dead birds this winter.
Still hoping for a late “Indian summer”, but it is looking less and less likely.
