This is so brilliant, it feels like it's come from some age-old philosopher! Many writers come up with head-turning ideas/commentaries like this, but rarely are such sentiments expressed so artfully that it feels like it's been taken from some old relic's tombstone. As fallible humans, we are all pretty lousy at having such visions when we look at other people we consider to be hopeless or lost or broken. Your expression makes us wish we could not only do what you're suggesting, but be able to do it while truly suspending our disbelief. This is amazing writing done in a stellar graphic typesetting (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

If there's the word 'garden' set before a reader, there's peace and patience involved, don't you think. Even thoughts need be planted.. some to ripen and some to fade into nothing. Patience too, same reasoning in a different way.. the two together end in such a beautiful place,.. harmony, perhaps.

Your words make this mind tick a little faster, trying to see what you see, what you want; the insight to broaden the emotions more and more.. and more. Your book must be, is, beautiful. Take care, keep safe, please. Warm waves to your family, enduring co-collaborator and friend.

So grateful to see you here again. Thank you for this blessed pause.
In faith we see beyond the natural and know that it shall be as we see it and hope for it to be seeing light in dark and goodness where emptiness lies...understanding and believing in one another ...always seeing the best in knowing without sight...trusting and bringing it to life....precious friends ...that’s what for....🌹🌹🌹

Thank you for stopping here... for sharing your kindness.
Indeed, we should each make a conscious effort to find the potential in all things. It may not be there as of yet but with nurturing and work and cultivating, much fallow land has produced life-giving fruit. I enjoyed your write. F.
