How Does Your Garden Grow

Emerald green and overgrown, that is how my garden grows.

We are stuck in a low pressure system, which means it rains a lot. The green outside the window is so vibrant it looks like a bad editing job.

I will mention the devastation in Moore, Oklahoma. It is difficult to comprehend something like this, my mind doesn't grasp it. So, I feel a heaviness in my soul and I look out at an unreal green as I go to the quiet place in my humanity which allows me to carry on in the face of so much sorrow. May the people of Moore find their way, which is beyond my imagination how.

  1. The green exploded everywhere here too, it hurts the brain to look at it all, and especially to contemplate how fast rates of growth. We don't cut grass here as much as mow the hay between rain. We've had at least 8 inches in a month, and it's crazy here.

    The tornado damage is unimaginable. I keep looking at the aerial photos marveling that anyone survived. My heart goes out to them as they try to pick up the pieces of their lives and their town.

I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
