tending: caring for or looking after; giving one’s attention to
So I’ve been tending. Tending to: time with friends; weeding, transplanting, and daydreaming in my yard; bike rides; practicing with my beloved piano; knitting (really enjoying making this Saroyan scarf — did you know it’s named for the character Dr Saroyan on Bones?); finding a special gift for my piano teacher; and freshening up the house and yard for spring.
A friend noticed and particularly was taken with what I currently use as the automated signature in my emails. I’m sharing it with all of you in case you haven’t yet seen it:
May the Sun bring you new energy by day.
May the Moon softly restore you by night.
May the Rain wash away your worries.
May the Breeze blow new strength into your being.
May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life.
