The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our relationship to the planet need not be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant, think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without diminishing the world.

Arise, Shine, For Your Light Has Come


Arise, Shine, For Your Light Has Come

for one more day


when the skies opened quiet and clear
and the sun shot down its golden spear
did you open up your heart to hear
or hide under the grey city in fear?

when the night reached its darkest end
and sent you for yourself to fend
to your own esteem did you tend
or sought you the wild, to make amends?

can you figure out where things went wrong?
find the note cut from the songbird’s song-
perhaps then you can fill every crack
so that when you stare into a puddle, it’s truly you that stares back

Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.

We are one of those couples i used to watch, thinking to myself that I’d never be on the inside of something so special. I remember reassuring myself that it probably looked nicer than it actually was, I am happy to be wrong about that.
