in the dirt

March 29, 2012

I almost didn’t believe it, finding myself digging in the dirt this morning. But yes–here on this compound, here in this city, that is exactly what I was doing, thanks to the delightful discovery that others had begun a bit of a garden behind our house. It was just about the most perfect way I can imagine to begin the weekend now that Spring has begun to show its cheery face. And in a land where I sometimes feel like dust and dirt block any beauty that might try to show its face, it is a blessed twist to find that same dirt becoming beautiful in its own right; all it takes is the right touch, I suppose . . . like that of one of my beautiful housemates :-)
