What is more magical than a lush oasis in the dead of winter?
Nothing. None more magical.
Except Unicorns. Unicorn Exception granted.
The past few days I've been obsessed with secret gardens and hidden passages. I gleaned the idea from a book on Hawaiian shamanism. As part of a meditative practice, the author suggests creating an imaginary garden that your subconscious mind can retreat too.
I skipped dinner and went straight to dessert with the conscious mind. She needs a break too.
How fun was it to be swept away visualizing the details of my ultimate green retreat filled with my favorite blooms, soft mosses and mysterious doors? A LOT OF FUN.
Wisteria, magnolia trees, flowering crabs, ferns, tall grasses, salmon poppies...
Moss. Everywhere. A heady dirt smell.
Perhaps a waterfall--not ostentatious. Just big enough to be awesome.
Take a moment to imagine it. What does your secret garden look like?
