There is an urgency in April and May in both man and Nature, an urgency that quiets during June. The promises of early spring are fulfilled this month. In the garden everything is in and up -- all the basic work complete, and we relax while the curtain rises on summer. This is the month we spread our deep hay mulch and after that the garden becomes entirely carefree -- no more tending or weeding. This leaves hammock time, beach time, visiting time, hours of wonderful long conversations with friends on vast or simple subjects, and best of all, time to do nothing.
Some people feel that doing nothing and being bored relate.
Boredom is a word I don't especially know, seldom use, and never think of as a state I experience. If it means a do-nothing interval between activities, I'm sure we all need a little more "boredom" in our lives. Certainly we all need more spaces between events! I'd not call such a space boredom, however, but rather a period in which to absorb and deepen the happening immediately behind you and prepare for the one that lies ahead.
