It’s easy to get busy. Between work, chores, groceries, children or simply opening mail there is often not much time left over. Especially when what you might need most is to maintain perspective and find ways, however small, to appreciate the good things in life. It could be argued that all of what we do, the to-do list, is the “good stuff”. But a visit to a place like Green Gulch Farm and Zen Center is a delightful reminder that there is more to life than meets the eye.
I’ve had a hankering for bees, keeping bees and gardening for bees. In fact, it’s officially added to my to-do list and definitely some “good stuff”, especially because the bee workshop I found took me to Green Gulch. Arriving early, I made a foray of the grounds and found myself here, smack dab in the middle of the prayer center and organic farm, in the flower garden. Better yet, it was loaded with bees and bumbles.
The beds of flowers are neatly arranged in rows or labyrinths, leading the eye and ultimately feet through paths and meadows of color. Eventually winding up here, at the organic nursery where natives and ornamentals can be purchased for a minimal fee.
Maybe what you need is to one day you’ll find yourself at Green Gulch or a version of it, by chance or choice. It could be your perfect moment. Just what you need to remind you of the “good stuff” of life. Perspective, bees, gardening and more.
