     Parenting is equivalent to gardening. Nurturing and guiding my offspring through childhood to adolescent brought experiences of arrogance in the sense that I was capable of raising well adjusted and capable and caring adults.  Humility set in as they  faced the challenges of adulthood--- careers , relationships, health and their own parenting roles.  

    Working with the soil  provides the therapeutic benefit equivalent to  contemplating the personal experiences and the larger collective global paradigm shifts.  

    The silence of the dark moist soil with its life giving nutrients, invisible to the human eye is quite enough to feel the spiritual in the density of the earth.
