life renewed…

“Nothing can dwindle to nothing, as Nature restores one thing from the stuff of another, nor does she allow a birth, without a corresponding death.”

Titus Lucretius Carus (c. 99 BC – c. 55 BC) was a Roman poet and philosopher. His only known work is the epic philosophical poem De rerum natura about the tenets and philosophy of Epicureanism, and which is usually translated into English as On the Nature of Things.

Damaged, but new growth is possible….

“Miracles… seem to me to rest not so much upon… healing power coming suddenly near us from afar but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that, for a moment, our eyes can see and our ears can hear what is there around us always.”    Willa Cather, Death Comes For the Archbishop



Change & Renewal

It is often said by wise ones, that the one true constant is change. The Fall season is a delight on the front end, but less so on the back end. For most, the gardens are put to rest. The colder temps and rain/wind have scoured most of the trees of their leaves (although as I look out my window I notice my neighbor has tall trees that have yet to lose their leaves…the winds will eventually blow them my direction in December!). The beautiful images of Fall are less clear now. The rivers will rise and cleanse the banks of the maple leaves that fluttered down. Cleansing will happen, hopefully without too much damage and renewal will be waiting beneath that somber Winter blanket. That almost sounded poetic didn’t it?



Sharing the Passion……..

for gardening, for flowers, for the results of months, if not years, of effort. One of the things I so enjoy is living in a neighborhood with folks that want to share, with humility, their gardens and the results. Bouquets are carried up and down the street as gifts, individual blooms are displayed. Even the other night an elderly Italian lady brought a large hibiscus bloom that had fallen to the ground to our house because she found it pretty and hoped we would too. Some are true Master Gardeners, others like me putz about doing our best, studying and planning to do better next year. All agree the cycle is changing. One can sense it in the air. Some plan for next year with optimism. Some, I imagine, pray they will be here next Spring for yet another round. A bit somber today…those little, old ladies do that to me.



Piles of Debris Go With Change & Renewal

“Home is a place you grow up in and can’t wait to leave….but, growing older you wish you could return.”

photography-SwittersB-piles-renovation-collageA renovation of an old house creates improvements along the way and an equal amount of debris seems to accumulate in piles here and there. Loads are taken away but new piles develop day by day in proportion to the work completed. A positive perspective is necessary to look beyond the debris and toward the improvements taking place…such is life. But you have to be building toward something.
