“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing.”
from Domestic Pensées
A garden is not an object but a process
Ian Hamilton Finlay (2004)
I like to think of gardening metaphors, like growing trust. You have to water it—not too much, not too little. And things will always grow in different directions and with different outcomes than you’re expecting, but that’s okay.
