This year, her front door garden is stunning with a sweet
woodruff ground cover.
I drove into her driveway, parked beside her car, and looked across the yard to a colorful, partially sunny wet spot. Delightful.
Poco a poco, little by little, Melissa becomes happier with her various flower beds.
Over time, we can focus on different themes in our meditation: breath, hearing, sensations of the body, loving-kindness, or any of the hundred meditations in my book The Meditative Gardener. One by one, our inner meditation garden becomes richer and deeper.
And our meditation becomes a pleasure.
