CUSTARD TARTS IN SPRING

Custard Tart

I look forward to my weekly meditation classes, being guided to visit tranquil gardens; climbing to a mountain top; visualising a dragonfly hovering over a stream; flying with an eagle.  I feel euphoric after the class and yet calm at the same time.

I wouldn’t suggest that I am looking to be like Buddha and seek enlightenment but at the same time an image that presented at the top of my mountain has left me with questions.   A custard tart awaited me!  Really….a custard tart!!!!    No spirit guide, no pivotal conclusions, just a custard tart!  I am not even that fond of custard tarts.  My guide must be laughing at me, playing a joke.  Perhaps I take things too seriously.  Perhaps it’s a message to enjoy the small things in life, though, I think I do that quite well!  What is the universe trying to tell me……………

Its spring time now.  A time when I feel the most alive.  The weather is perfect and I enjoy the kiss of the sun on my skin.  The only thing missing is the scent of jasmine in the air.  It’s the growing season and the garden looks great.  A recent attempt, however, to grow lavender was an epic fail.  Once in a while I still water it, hoping for a miracle.

I love plants and gardening and can’t understand the betrayal I feel towards this little plant, having gone to the effort to buy it a lovely pot from which to shine.  I have bought lemon grass to replace it.  It sits in a neighbouring pot waiting for me to pull the final pin and remove the dead lavender.  I keep telling it ‘one more week and you’re gone’ to try and motivate it.  If this weeks’ mediation takes me to a field of lavender, then I’ll be in trouble.  Oh, and if anyone knows what a custard tart means, or the number 42, please enlighten me.
