"Our Life is shaped by our mind...

...for we become what we think." - Buddha
Today beets were the color of the morning as I volunteered at my local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
Spending a summer morning washing and sorting freshly harvested organic veg is a great way to start the day. It is mindfulness in action. Knowing that farmers Baylee and Ryan care for the earth as much as the success of their crops makes working a pleasure. People will take vegetables home and prepare them in various ways. It's a delight to imagine the nourishment of so many - especially those who will benefit from Upper Pond Farm produce at tomorrow's shoreline food pantry.
We are given the care of creation. I'm grateful to be a small part of that right here in Lyme. Plus I get to enjoy gorgeous beets, the bright tomatoes, garlic scapes, and my favorite bok choy sautéed with sesame oil with a little scrambled egg at breakfast.
Nourish your body and your mind and soul will be fed as well. Watch a child choose what to eat, as I did tonight with a two-year-old who selected choice bits of pineapple off my pizza. She relished each bite!
May you be present in each moment and have moments to savor.
