Fall

Fall is great, isn't it?

Just came in from the front yard after spending about 30 minutes cleaning up a plant bed. Had to re-dig the borders and put on some mulch to keep the roots from freezing this winter.

One of the enjoyable things at this time of year is to gather seeds off the Purple Cone Flowers, Red Yucca, penstimens, and hollyhocks. Then I get to spread them around in other beds or to help fill in their current ones come next Spring.

Am reading this fall "The Practice of Spiritual Direction" by Barry and Connolly. Not a bad read, but it seems to bog down from time to time. Learning more about spiritual direction, and spiritual formation has been one of my goals this year. It really is interesting -- and enlightening to read and then to experience some of what so many people before have experienced. This has been a while coming; read Foster's books on prayer and disciplines a few years ago.

Fall and reading seem to go hand in hand. The reading sprinkles seeds from various places and eventually they will sprout and fourish.

Can't wait till Spring!
