procrastinator's reward ~

Putting things off, I dug this rosemary up in January and brought it inside to over-winter. I was concerned that I had put it off too long...there were a few weeks where I wondered if this little fragrant bush was going to make it or had it simply weathered too much cold and wind and frost...! Now the whole plant is covered in these delicate flowers...

bring forth what you might be ~

You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don't know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don't know who your friends are, you don't know what you owe anybody, you don't know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen.

don't worry about perfection ~

Don’t worry about achieving. Don’t worry about perfection. Just be there each moment as best you can. When you realize you’ve wandered off again, simply very lightly acknowledge that. This light touch is the golden key to reuniting with our openness.
