I have been avoiding my thoughts by digging in the soil, planting vegetables, flowers and herbs. It has worked. Until today. Today, my heart is heavy and my limbs barely move. The garden calls to me. I ignore her. The phone rings. I ignore it. The wind gently calls, but I can barely hear it, I can't feel it. I guess this would be a valley.

The days working the garden, hearing the wind, watching the plants grow, the sun penetrating my skin; this would be a peak. Today is not a peak day.
Maybe tomorrow will be a peak day. Maybe the next valley is so far in the distance that I can't even see it. Let's hope.
So I finally forced myself outside. Do you know what my biggest problem is right now? I can't pick all of the pansies and freesias fast enough. There are vases of flowers in almost every room. It would appear that my valley certainly has a few peaks...
