The Joys of Gardening

"Getting one's hands into the earth, spreading roots, making a plant comfortable - it is a totally absorbing occupation, like painting or writing, so that you become what you are doing and are given a wonderful release from consciousness of self.  And so, for that matter, is simply sitting in your garden, taking it in."
