Report From PIA – January 6
I spent the day doing everything but writing, which isn’t a good thing because I have a book proposal to finish and three articles due soon. There are also talks I need to prepare for, so when I got home I went right to my photo library to select images for those presentations.
Ahhh…I was back in gardens, and my errands, phone calls and other taking-care-of-business melted away. Flowers and gardens have the power to soothe, and when the plants are put together with a professional’s eye, they delight the heart and soul as well as relieving stress.
Music and art have the same ability, so I wasn’t surprised the other day when a friend said that she believed that art has the power to change the world. I agree, but I’d add music and gardens into that category.
Tonight, I’m saying a prayer of gratitude for all who plant gardens, compose and play music, and create art.
