I am a gardener,
I know plants grow at the bottom first,
Root before stem,
Stem before flower.

The soil must be rich, dark,
I must water until it's soaked
So thirsty roots
Will go deep to drink
Not fan out on the surface
To wither in the heat.

Go down first,
Trust depths and darkness,
Then flower.

From the book, " Lost in Wonder" by Esther De Waal

" The key to success in life lies simply in one's ability to live as if they were going to die tomorrow, but plan as if they are going to live to old age."
Written in 2009 by Clive Dempster --- England
It stands true that if planning to live to old age, you will execute on a life taking care of your health, prepped for any pitfalls and surprises that the future holds. Believing you will live to old age, you can have the experiences you want before settling, be in control and carefully manage and choose your path. In action living, through your plans, you should maximize the joy of life, be positive and spontaneous, knowing it could all go in a heartbeat.

" To truly care about someone is when you stand by them, even if it's from a distance."
Copyright © 2009 Renee Scalfani
I wrote this for someone I truly care for and worry about. When we see someone we care for falling down, it's not up to us to catch them but to put out our hand to show we are here to support them. It is up to them to seek the help they need to better there life because they deserve a better way of living.
