Dyma’r 5ed flwyddyn i fi ymgymryd yn ‘her’ #30DiwrnodGwyllt a dyma’r un sydd wedi bod yn un hir ddisgwyledig. Mae’r cyffro wedi bod yn bresennol a bron yn anioddefol ers mis Mawrth! I fod yn onest, nid Mehefin sy’n berchen ar hawlfraint anturiaethau gwyllt erbyn hyn. Ond eleni,
- Mae da fi ddigon o amser rhydd
- Mae natur yn galw’n ddyddiol ac yn gyson!
This is my 5th year of #30DaysWild and it’s been the most widely anticipated by far. I’ve been ready to go since March! Having said that, the 30 days of being wild in June has now started to permeate into every month of the year. June no longer holds the exclusive rights for wild adventures. But this year,
- I have plenty of time
- Nature is calling and enticingly generous on a daily basis.
So, where to start with day 1.
It’s fairly unassuming. It’s behind the ‘nyth’. But this year, it’s offered moments of restbite and contemplation as the apple tree came into leaf, blossomed, attracted the pollinators, started to bear fruit and offered conversational starting points.
And this year, it’s appropriate to start 30 Days Wild 2020 style by sitting there for an hour today.
Cleansing the mind.
Nothing else, just being. To find the human. The component of being a compassionate human that is proving hard to maintain.
This isn’t just an apple tree. Sitting there, I have a daily traffic reports from the M25 of the ant world.
They climb their daily Everest on regular zig-zagging conquests and when they get to the top, they sprint down in order to do it again.
Getting pictures of ants is quite difficult but great fun!
And from a gardening perspective, they don’t travel to self-isolate near childcare. They travel to a food source. You could say it’s a very essential journey. And this is what they’re after:
My apple tree doesn’t seem to have too many aphids and appears in general good health. So organically, I’ll keep the symbiosis going for a while. The ants can have their freedom. The aphids can have their home – even with the high predator risk. Their insurance policy must be crippling (even through a successful comparison site like http://www.comparethemeerkant.com)
The smallest of creatures. The simplest of connections. The greatest pleasure.
Mae #30DiwrnodGwyllt yn mynd i fod yn bleser pur eleni. Fally mwy. Falle ffordd o ail-gynnau ffydd a gobaith.
