leaving the building and going for a short walk in the sun and shade of trees I felt joyous, so happy, to be alive… I am so lucky to work in a place that is so full of nature. Recently they tore out a bunch of cypress trees that weren’t doing very well. At first I was upset because I hate seeing plants destroyed. And yet as time passes the vista becomes familiar and I saw for the first time that what is right outside my office window is a lovely grove of trees. I would go so far as to say it might be safe for a late night ritual and I could park very close by.
This lovely shrub is very fragrant, like carnations, kind of cinnamony and sweet…
