Gardening 365 – Day 72

OH YES, I’ve ordered it already: Mandela’s Way: Fifteen Lessons on Life, Love and Courage.

I read about this in the latest issue of O Magazine. If I take nothing else away from that issue, but notice of this book, that’s enough. My apologies to O for summarizing their summary:

“Create a sacred zone: In the early 1970’s, Mandela began keeping vegetables on prison grounds. (His first plot was a rocky patch measuring just one yard wide; lacking tools, he had to dig with his hands.)…he cultivated a place apart, a pocket of calm amid harsh realities. “You must find your own garden,” he advises, simply.”

Amen.
