Walk a garden path at dusk on a late summer night. The herbs of summer are at their peak, the oil of their leaves giving off a steady, soft thread of heady night air. Lavender in all its gentleness lulls the muscles into an unclenching which soothes. Sage, from the Latin salvere, meaning, to be saved, in it’s clarity, can salvage sanity in any hectic day. And steady, fresh mint is most valuable in how it refreshes continually. Turn over the last of this day’s thoughts to the garden. Walk a bit longer and let go.
