Vlad, I need to give this post some deep thought because you did. Kindly let me ruminate, and I will give your most welcomed and intelligent — and empathetic- post the response it deserves. I really appreciate this. I’m gardening right now (which is a drug-free lobotomy to pilfer your superb term) and deeply satisfying. You raise such essential issues about our essence and our being that I really need to quietly embrace them while I am immersing myself in fragrant beauty (and taking my mind off the mind-numbing paid of my healing rotator cuff).
I love, absolutely love posts like this. I have to go away and consider. What a gift. Thank you. I promise to respond in kind as soon as I dig the dirt out from under my nails. Nature nurtures. She sure does.
