Picture Perfect : Welcome to My World
Here is a view of “my world” (the north side of our house and roadside bed) where I also find expressed my world view. With effort we can cultivate beauty and encourage life, be creative. Opportunities to forgive abound, my neighbour’s maple tree seeds itself freely—I hate to pull out trees but don’t want a forest here. I hope he has forgiven me for the shrubs that creep over the fence. Crabgrass gets in there but I remain constant in pulling it out. There is hope as seen by the forsythia about to bloom and the buds on the rose bushes (those brown sticks). This is my garden, yet the work I do there has an influence on others, those that pass by, the neighbours who see it from their windows. The same is true of the world in general—the efforts we make to be and do good flow out, contributing our part to reality. Cultivating the inner and the outer garden of Earth—my world – and yours.
