Tillin' time

Yesterday in class I mentioned a bumper sticker I have on my car that has an Aleph, the first Hebrew letter with the words "the work is in the mundane".  I was referencing our work on this earth; the laundry, dishes, exercise, proper sleep, work, caring for kids.  That work is the work.  The day in, day out routine of plain old work.  Being diligent and aware in this environment is the way of life. 

This morning though, the thoughts that came to me had taken it a little farther.  Aleph, uruz, and Aries.  It is Ostara time after all!  This early spring has everyone revved up.  Are you going to buzz about like a mad top and spin your energy out with no direction and no purpose?  Or are you going to yoke your ox to the till and do the work that is needed for planting?  I know what my answer is.  What's yours?


  1. My plan? Dig, plant, mulch, weed, spray biological preps, fertilize, dig more, spin about like a mad top (Spring makes me happy), then plant more. Me? An Aries, yes. Taurus rising, of course. Now, if you'll excuse me, the garden calls... :-)
