Welcome to today’s lovely post.
This mellow, cheerful, uplifting and calming post is dedicated to all the readers who might recently have read, SOMEWHERE, anything toxic, severe, destructive or otherwise disturbing… We are here to help you heal.
Now just relax. Breathe. Think of something fuzzy (no, not mold.)
Or cheerful. (And not a sunflower because they mostly just die.)
Think of a daisy, like grows where the lawn is supposed to be.
Oh but that would be a weed!
THINK OF THE OCEAN.
(sorry, didn’t mean to shout)
There, yes, an ocean…
And so, dear disturbed readers, welcome to the land of happy happiness, a sanctuary where you are safe and hardly at all likely to suffer.
Really it is quite a non-threatening sort of place, very few sharp implements around, poisonous plants are all in a dormant state, power saws turned off…
There is no stress about anything, not even about how you haven’t ordered your garden seeds yet or you ordered them and forgot to get the green beans or you ordered them and then a cheaper catalog arrived the next day– no no no, none of that horrible garden performance anxiety at all. Or financial anxiety either. Although seeds are more expensive this year…
But we are letting all that go. Those worries drift off, float away, just like your retirement benefits did~~~ up up up– like the cost of health care~~~
And know that behind every flower is a warmly smiling person, waiting to fulfill your every dream…
[Sigh.] Hasn’t this been wonderful? Flowers, and the ocean, and more flowers…
(I wanted to find a butterfly for you but this time of year the ones I found all had pins in them and they look really different like that.)
And so we part. But now you are acquainted with this haven of tranquility and peace, this refuge for the weary gardener and every other ragtag person out there…
So please join us again soon
–because the real world is just not all it’s cracked up to be.
[okay where’s my beer?]
