wondering and wandering.
It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know of wonder and humility. ~ Rachel Carson
Not all who wander are lost. ~J. R. R. Tolkien
And with those worthy words for you to ponder, I'm off to wonder and wander a bit this afternoon ... lots to wonder about, like why my neighbor cannot hear her LOUD, OBNOXIOUS dog barking for hours on end, but I can ... sigh. But there are much more pleasant things to wonder about ... sunsets, birds, water, woods ...yes, those are much better than barky dogs. And when the stifling heat and humidity relent just a bit, I'll be wandering around the community garden and probably wondering about the plants and the wildlife and who knows what else (my mind tends to wander far and wide these days). Wondering and wandering can be very pleasant ways to spend a summer afternoon.
And for my herb loving readers, I suggest you go here and peruse the wonderful W herbs Mountain Rose Herbs has to offer. White Willow Bark is highly recommended, and I wouldn't be without Witch Hazel!
