I woke up today with the intent of completing many artworks that lay on the drawing table and computer! Though a neighbour needed a helping hand with some things, it wasn’t long till we were walking around his garden, of which over time had become totally independent! 🙂 Meaning it had wonderfully become overgrown in some area’s! – haha!
For my help he gave me many cuttings and plants, of what was a over supply of natural goodies indeed!
So , in order to keep these plants alive i have spent the day, knees and elbow deep in dirt and mud! – Dam it is good to garden!
Every day that passes the reality of our need to tend to the care of our natural environment becomes more apparent!
Indeed we never own anything in reality, from the earth we have come – and to the earth we shall return! – We are stewards, glorified garden keepers in the span of life, but in forgetting our roots or origin of soil, we miss the very things that give us life, water, soil, plants, trees, animals and so on. We are but a part of this!
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link and it would appear that it is us, the human race who has been the weakest!
We need to thus reflect our natural environments, not the attitude and regard for life that man made metropolis weigh upon society today, life is not to be convenient, only natural!
Hahai no ka ua i ka ulula’au.
