When two heart beat as one
Love to sneak behind you, slowly
Close your eyes with my hands
When you look back
My lips meet yours
Love your love filled look
I’m so in love with you my love
This love is what makes me alive…

My tiny back yard has recently undergone a massive makeover this spring. I’m still finishing up a few details before I share it with all of you. But, I wanted to make a point about Focal Points and Focal Point Trees in particular. A small or large-scale tree placed strategically in the landscape for its shape, texture, color can add an immeasurable amount of artistic flair and drama with very little effort.
This brand new Larix pendula, ‘Weeping Larch’ does just that here at the end of my path as it opens into the main yard. In fall when the needles turn a warm gold and drop, then I will have that incredible weeping structure to look at all winter. WIN WIN!
Frequently, I have customers and clients who are SO bloom focused for the few weeks of a flowering tree or shrubs blooms in the year that they forget…

Somedays when I read the newspaper
Even though I no longer read it on paper
Calling it newspaper makes it like an old friend
I come across some news good some news bad
Some stories happy some stories sad
But you know that cliched word was coming
Some stories however make me mad
These are not about the corrupt politicians
or the latest excuse they made to go for War
After some time that theme starts to bore
Having been executed since time began
Nope these are the stories
Of people (mostly men, but sometimes women)
treating other people badly
Kids being raped and killed
Teachers fucking students
Women being tortured in Country X for doing Y
Gays being bullied for being gays
These are the days
I feel like going back on my monkish vows
And unleashing a cyber scepter
On predators who…

Choice is directed at some end, and this involves determining what the end should be and how it should be reached. We are responsible for the choices we make and for their consequences. We are free to make choices and to take actions based on those choices.
What is practical wisdom?
According to Aristotle in his Nicomachean Ethics, practical wisdom is a true characteristic that is bound up with action, accompanied by reason, and concerned with things good and bad for a human being.
Practical wisdom is not concerned with the universals alone, but must also be acquainted with the particulars: it is bound up with action, and action concerns the particulars.
Practical wisdom is concerned with human things and with those that about which it is possible to deliberate.
He who [has practical wisdom] is skilled in aiming, in accord with calculation, at what is best for a human…

He was not pretty and he was not well bred. Socrates was a plebeian, of common stock, which set him at a disadvantage in the aristocratic world of ancient Greece. Socrates was a muscular, thick-set man, with a snub nose and heavy brow. He had served, at some point, in the hoplite infantry, but whatever physical presence he possessed was diminished by his self-depreciating sense of humour and unmanly instinct for philosophical discussion. Socrates would make a practice of wandering barefoot about the marketplace, chatting to the people that he met. When he was alone, he’d stand for hours lost in thought. People thought he was very strange. He was polite, for the most part. But he didn’t seem to fit in.
Socrates did not charge a fee for his services, unlike the Sophists, the professional thinkers of the time. Unlike the philosophers who came…

Looking carefully at the rushing waters spilling over the edge of the glacier you can imagine the power it carries with it to move, erode or totally transform all that may lay in its way. However, in the forefront of the image you can see a lone rock sustaining life. This is powerful imagery!
Natural power can be overwhelming. It does not concern itself with people or places. If it is time for action, then it acts regardless of the hour. It often brings with it a force which few can recon with. It is spontaneous, potent and seemingly ruthless. It’s source seems to be amazingly strong and without limitation. Life can sometimes feel like this kind of natural power is…

This common phrase: “Money is not everything, but everything needs money.” I don’t know who created it, but it seems to be quoted and lived out by many people. I probably one of them without I realized it…:)
Last night as someone told me this, of course i didn’t have immediate answer. But as i think about it further, i don’t think it’s right. At least for two reasons:
1. Not everything need money. This is good news! In fact, many things do NOT need money. I was reminded that the BEST things in life are FREE. It doesn’t need money for me to smile, to share empty space & give up seat to someone in need. It does not need money to see at the sunset, listen to the birds, taste the pure rain water, dance on large green field, shout out your lung from a mountain…
