A Moment of Tranquility
I spent some time trying to imagine living in a big city where many people don't have a space to call their own and came to the realization that I would not be able to handle that situation. I imagined that I would have to have an apartment with a roof top garden or something where there was some plant life at least. I have read a lot about Urban Gardening and know there are many things one can do with small spaces. I feel very fortunate that I have a yard that I can have my flowers and vegetables growing and have dirt under my feet - not to mention my fingernails which always seems to be the case having a garden.
I ran out of coffee last week and haven't had any for a week because I didn't have time to go to the grocery store last week. At first I thought it was really going to bother me, but found it hasn't. I only mention this because sitting out there this morning I really missed having a steaming cup of coffee and made a note to myself that when I get coffee for my morning cup, it should be in this very spot. The little bit of time I had this morning really set my day off right.
