Last Sunday afternoon we did some literal “heavy lifting” in the Green Acres Neighborhood Garden.
Notice in the photos of the event, the house behind the ones that show the new hugelculture beds in the garden. That’s the house where the shooting took place only ten days ago.
We were creating the conditions for resurgence of new life directly across from the very street from where the worst situation most of us can imagine actually played out in real time just ten days ago. Juxtaposing polarities. Juggling realities. Choosing to move forward with what’s right and good and connected, what nourishes us, what we can all get behind.
