  • >>>> There is an entry in a little book we read from each morning during our quiet time together... before the busy day begins and interruptions, schedules, and emergencies take over. It's really the July 27th entry, but that's close enough to Aug 2nd to work for me and I hope it will work for you as August shadows lengthen and dew is thick, delicious, especially on sunny mornings.

    >>>> "Walk in Dewy Grass
    >>>> I love this suggestion. It is a remedy for fatigue, but I find it to be one of the swiftest happiness enhancers I know. Maybe because I love going barefoot, and the added bonus of wet grass is simply delicious. If your access to dewy grass is limited, there is an alternative - Next best thing is to carefully walk up and back in 6 inches of cold bathwater. Do it for 5 to 10 minutes in the morning and late afternoon."*

    >>>> I thought you'd like this. I think it will uplift you as your lover slowly heals and the weight of constant caring bends your back. I put you uppermost in my mind and stepped outside to walke around barefoot in the dewy grass out. Yesterday we mowed, so there were fragments. Came in with tiny little pieces of mowed grass decorating my feet like some abstract painting. Helen and I used to do this at the farm in Ferndale way before it became a natural remedy! Ha. That Helen! She was a good witch. True to our experience almost everything she did was fashionable before it's time, including that farm in Bucks County.

    >>>> Thinking of, and loving you to the moon, my dear. Please be good and rest yourself.
