Place your hands upon the Earth and experience the potential for life that lives within each molecule of the soil. Plant a seed and imagine the buds emerging from the ground fed by water and sunlight and the many nutrients abundant in the soil's rich texture. You are creating life you are giving back to the Earth knowing all the amazing things the planet provides for us every day. If a plant is already growing but in a place you don't want it to flourish then give it a quick pull. Look at its roots at how hardy and defiant it was in our garden. Smell the Earth; appreciate the growth, the recycling of life, the complexity of one small yard or flower pot. Life exists all around us but digging in the dirt can somehow bring us closer to home.
