There are days when I wish I didn't live here. Overzealous parents are rallying at my daughter's elementary school to oust the new principal, my husband and I commute in opposite directions and rely on the slowest transit network in the nation, and I just received another $65 parking ticket because I forgot to put a quarter in the meter. Really?

After the dew has dried and the air is warm, spend a little time sitting down and settling in to your chosen garden, any garden. Let the sun warm your body and the flowers please your heart. Look for butterflies, watch the bugs, listen to the birds.
