Report From An Opinionated Gardener – November 23
This morning I discovered a delightful blog: Thx Thx Thx – a thank you note a day. It’s written by Leah Dieterich, and she’s one of those people who balance out the craziness I was lamenting yesterday. Just when I start to think that the country is becoming completely anti-intellectual, simple minded and greedy, I stumble across proof that all is not lost. Thank you, God.
This blog is perfect to read as we approach Thanksgiving, as it gives us a slightly different way of thinking of gratitude. It’s easy to be thankful for family (if you like them), keeping your job (if you have one), and dogs, but did you ever consider writing a note to shit, thanking it for being a universal experience? I thought not. Thanks, Leah.
Tomorrow, I’ll write a thank you note to my gardens, but today I want to express appreciation to all who put creativity, personality and spirit into their blogs. There are hundreds, dare I hope thousands, of you out there and I’m totally, completely grateful. Not to mention a bit frustrated that I can’t just spend an entire year exploring what you’re all writing.
Be they actual, metaphorical or virtual, our gardens are diverse and full of surprises. Thankfully.
