This month, I’ve been braking for mushrooms. Since the hard rain a bit ago, the steamy ground has expelled fungi, shooting up all around. In contrast, human events were few and far between as many Common Grounders took a collective exhale to rest and recharge. Still, there’s plenty to see and say and know in the Calendar & Newsletter.* We hope you’ll be inspired to take a look, save some dates, and turn out in September as you are able.
STARTING WITH…the weekend events on the land this weekend, September 4 & 5. Want to learn about biochar? Now’s your chance. Better yet, come around to connect with others and turn your hand at whatever beckons. Maybe find a quiet spot in the woods by the creek and breathe in the timeless peace all around. Wendell Berry puts it far more lyrically:
Sit and be still until the
time of no rain you hear
beneath the dry wind’s
commotion in the trees the
sound of flowing water
among the rocks, a stream
unheard before, and you are
where breathing is a prayer.
Wishing you beauty unfurling all around,
Hope, for Common Ground Ecovillage
