Is there anything more hopeful, more mysterious given that it makes a profound connection with the earth, more beautiful than planting something? It takes so little. A clay pot. A little soil. A plant. Perhaps basil. Or a tomato plant. Or maybe a flower. The what and where is not nearly as important as taking a few minutes and planting something. Dirt under your nails is a beautiful thing. And don’t forget, humility is related to humus — the soil of life. For those of you in the east, Spring is almost here. For those in the west, Spring as sprung. Take a Breath. Do something good for yourself (and Mother Earth). Plant. Something. Anything.
