Meditation 4.2.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle
Today was the day I began the "prescribed burns" on my section of forest.
It is amazing how much tinder builds up throughout the year, choking off new growth, creating fire hazards, etc, etc.
Fire is such a meditative being, particularly since you have to pay strict attention to what you are doing. I find the entire process (at least at the beginning) relaxing and quite cleansing. Leaving the ground bare, scattered with ash and ready for morels.
Of course, I have only gotten a small portion of the property done, I am sure by the end of the week I will not be enjoying the process any longer.
