Town Hall #10: Seeds
Clover. Mint, marjoram, echinecha, sage. Pumpkin, cucumber, sunflower, cantaloupe.
Sowing seeds is safe nowadays. Attempts are cheap, easy, and riskless.
I’m not sure if I’m getting good in the garden, but soil feels nice between my fingers.
Learning demands feedback. In gardens, experiments take months (or years) to resolve.
I see seeds everywhere now. Social seeds, business seeds, health seeds, etc. – riskless projects demanding small periodic efforts.
Last season’s seeds are sprouting. My September sobriety seed is fruiting extra time, better health, and deeper joys. And Spring is bringing the early cotyledons of Outland, scrapscript, and my entrepeneurship project.
Sometimes long work is more valuable than hard work.
Bay Area Meetup
I’ll be visiting the Bay Area from May 30 to June 2! Let me know if you’d like to meet up. I’m hoping to get a group together for pinball.
