After looking at a kid with a fork up his nose, I had to look at something pretty. My side garden before Dr. P told me to stop tending. It's now a weedy out of control mess. But my weedy out of control mess is beauty to others. A PG&E (gas and electric) guy walked through the gate and said "Oh my God" I said, I know, it's a mess. He said "No, it's so beautiful.") My former neighbor visited recently and came through the gate and said "Oh my God." I said, I know, it's a mess. He said "No, it's so gorgeous." The weeds had grow so much there was just a wee path through the garden. I started to look at my garden differently. I wanted it all neat and clean, but to so many all messy was beautiful. I'd never considered that. This is just the side yard with the garbage, recycling bins etc.. It was all ugly with just pea gravel, so I planted it and of course the plants responded in kind.
Life is beautiful.
