Every Trail Every Sign

Dedicated staff setting up WG to be as good as it can be. So much to do before the next snowstorm is our mantra. Appreciate all the help and encouragement from so many. Thanksgiving weekend is our goal to open with a wreath workshop, cafe open for lunch, sales, repairs, and the last trail work weekend. This is hard work yet worth it!

Messenger by Mary Oliver

My work is loving the world.
Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird—
equal seekers of sweetness.
Here the quickening yeast; there the blue plums.
Here the clam deep in the speckled sand.

Are my boots old? Is my coat torn?
Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me
keep my mind on what matters,
which is my work,

which is mostly standing still and learning to be
The phoebe, the delphinium.
The sheep in the pasture, and the pasture.
Which is mostly rejoicing, since all the ingredients are here,

which is gratitude, to be given a mind and a heart
and these body-clothes,
a mouth with which to give shouts of joy
to the moth and the wren, to the sleepy dug-up clam,
telling them all, over and over, how it is
that we live forever.
