The Thingness of Things

Gardener, artist, writer, walker, atheist, disciple of the Buddha, heathen at heart, vegan, gay, pacifist, realist, nature and yoga: In all I seek the middle ground.

“Don’t just do something, sit there.”

“Sometimes I get so immersed in my own company, if I unexpectedly run into someone I know, it’s a bit of a shock and takes me a while to adjust.”

“There are those who live in their minds, and there are those who live in reality. Then there are those who take what’s in their mind, in their dreams, in their souls, in their wishes, and skillfully and beautifully blend the two worlds together.”

Crazy week weatherwise.

We went from the hotest, muggiest days of summer, to fall temperatures. The temperature will drop just low enough (7°C) to avoid ground frost tonight. The leaves have started turning and I saw the first geese formations heading  south.

The geese are travelling south and I am aiming east, to a small coastal town, Rimouski, a seven hours bus ride, north-east of Montréal. No date has been set, but if I follow my heart, this is where I’ll go next year.
