  4. Austin Kleon, in an article (https://austinkleon.com/2021/04/26/im-not-languishing-im-dormant/) on April 26, writes about how being married to a gardener gives him rich metaphors for understanding time which goes by another clock- Mother Nature. As he says, “Gardeners not only develop a different sense of time, they develop the ancient wisdom of knowing when to do things:

    To every thing there is a season,
    and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
    A time to be born, and a time to die;
    a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
    A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up…

    …if you try to wake a plant out of dormancy too soon, it will wither, and maybe die.”
