this image is actually from last week.
more local carrots. got that great stick.
today while at the co-op, i was met with a new sort of regulation, a new protocol, which i got all worked up about.
it just didn’t and still doesn’t fully make sense to me.
i can try to wrap my mind around it, but something about it seems a little fishy.
no offense to fish.
i got all worked up
got back to the Rabbit warren, er, house, and shared the new protocol
and, unfortunately, my worked-up-ness.
i suppose if i had it together i could have seen that i was all worked up over this thing that i have no control over
and which isn’t the end of the world
i was just all grumped up about it and that’s what i brought into the kitchen
o i don’t like when i do that.
fortunately for me, they are understanding Rabbits, and through some talking and awareness around my getting all worked up, the storm passed…
the knot in my chest loosened
and even the post-flip-out remorse swamp didn’t last too long.
there are just SO many things out of my control.
i can only control my response to things, really, it seems.
choices, and responses.
and as the saying goes, ‘you gotta pick yer battles’
and this is not one i really want to put energy into.
honestly, i miss the Park Slope Food Co-op in Brooklyn.
now, that’s a REAL co-op.
and while i don’t know if i could ever live in a major metropolitan area again, and it’s been over 12 years since i lived there, i still often think of the PSFC with a lot of fond memories, especially the people i worked with.
listening to a podcast of On Being of an interview with Sylvia Boorstein also made a HUGE difference in the weather…
it’s lovely – i highly recommend it.
especially if one is a parent, or re-learning how to parent oneself, as in my case.
for those of you who follow the good morning photo every day, i’m going to be away from a computer for a couple days, so there won’t be any posts of the good morning photo till Monday, or maybe Sunday if i get home early.
please enjoy the weekend
and the lovely pear.
and this series of photographs which just sent me into a spin of wonder and awe for the world
