I like to spend time out in my garden, mowing the laws, weeding the plants and playing with my dog. I feel I can think when I am out there, I can breath, and also I feel as though whatever was bothering me seem to shrink.
Out there between to ferns,
I feel the hot sun, I feel it burn,
My gloves shielding me from the dirt and my sun hat from the sun,
My mind races, and plunders over a sea of thoughts that race over me,
on this very hot, sun afternoon,
I think about business, university, life, death and love,
I think about clutter, uncluttering this garden,
untangling the yard and my thoughts at the same time,
I can not change my situation in one afternoon,
but I can change how I think and feel, and react,
to the magical world I live in.
Do you have a place or activity that gives you space? A place that makes your big problems small? Do you enjoy gardening?
