Thoughts - September 3, 2016

"Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that
sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help."
May Sarton
"...forces patience...." I was thinking about this yesterday, on my way to work, when stuck behind a slow moving vehicle which was descending the mountain at the pace of a turtle. There were too many cars behind and zillions coming at me to relax and enjoy the magnificent views. The Hillsville Labor Day Flea Market and simply the magnitude of tourists to the Blue Ridge Parkway changes the tenor of our nature-filled habitat. The extreme busyness of the next few months keeps many of us "alive" over the quieter winter season. It is then we can move into the 'slow circles of nature.' Now is the time to slip into second gear.....yet still rev those engines! - Beth Almond Ford
