The right time is today.

As I grab my cup of morning coffee and head out back to see the results of last night's rain and to ponder the challenges I will tackle for the day, I realize that now is the time. This motto is quintessentially a process of endeavor and success. No matter what stands before us, or perhaps if it is simply just an idea, the best time to start is now.

I recall the saying "The best time to plant an Oak tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is now." In retrospect, the best time is always when we first have the urge-- to follow our inner instincts and to react in a productive manner that is free of fear, hesitation and inhibition. However, the second best time is now.

This leads to a resurrection of this dialogue with life, regardless if there is an audience. Those who stumble upon these words out of desire, idea, or pure chance, I urge you to start... now. Join a local club, council, or organization. Invest in community and follow your instincts. If local communities are hard to find or non-existent, then join a broader community in the various forums of interest where support can be found. Check out the following: Beesource Forum for Beekeeping and even the highly populated BackYardChickens. Peruse posts, topics, or even join.

One final suggestion is to listen to the many available podcasts on sustainability. My favorite involves a little more but is run by Jack Spirko at TheSurvivalPodcast.

Remember the right time is now... today.
