          I think I may have shared this wonderful essay from Brain Pickings with you a few months ago; if so, just learn from it once more. This is a time when we need to go to the essence of our beings, to focus on those activities and habits of mind that lead to renewal, to growth, to transformation. Gardening and the metaphor of the garden are keys. thank you, Maria Popova, for this essay of hope. The images here are all from Monet’s Palate, a new book published at Giverny.

Read…Reflect…Share!

 “It came to me while picking beans, the secret of happiness.”
