Starting this month new, like real Spring. No more of the things that are bad for my heart. I was taught a hard lesson yesterday about my heart; I was an April Fool, and one for far too long. Even the ones we love the most will hurt us, when they have no skin in the game. It’s my fault for having this tender heart, but this too shall pass. I will heal like I always do, but this time I won’t put myself in a position to be hurt again.

I read in my friend Sal Mayweather’s blog that “If you don’t come out of this with someone kind of new skill or side hustle, you wasted time. No more complaining.” So I am starting this book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver. Going to see wht I can learn and let it stick on this whole gardening like a mountain woman thing.
