Gardening is my Prozac. The time I dedicate to training tomato vines or hacking at berry bushes seems to help me stave off feelings of sadness or dread and calm the chatter in my mind. My vegetable beds have even buoyed me through more acute stressors.

|A halo rainbow-like sun dog |
encircling the total eclipse
on August 21, 2017
a day that remain in my heart
forever as much of a rare

I was moved.
|and here's another pic....|
and yes we had totality
and yes we were able to view full totality
because the clouds cleared
just in time
like a parting of the Red Sea
woo hoo for me
Maybe yours too?

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE-ness
that currently is keeping all people in the
USA in their rightful places.

proved to be SOMEBODY's

Job & Mission to prove who the Nobody's are.

It's that simple (minded) really as you continue
on your Joseph Campbell Hero's Journey
