Nothing to Fear

Today I read this entry on a blog by Michael Umphrey related to gardening. As I wrap up another year of gardening, pleased with the work accomplished but ever aware of all the other things I wished I had been able to do, his words struck home with me:

"It’s sad not to live in a garden, even a garden as unfinished and in need of care as mine. Having a garden is, to me, mostly a way of paying attention to the grace that dazzles and reassures, a way of aligning one’s small efforts with something so vast and good that we slowly learn we really do have nothing to fear."
