We've been having beautiful weather that will soon turn hot and humid, as it does in Maryland in the summer. I have been gardening and loving my garden.
I am so tired of the contentious political atmosphere in my country. It seems that Donald Trump has grabbed the attention of the nation by the throat. Every day a new crisis. He revels in keeping us all in confusion and anger. In the meantime, nothing gets done. People are suffering.
I can't do anything but pray at this point. So I tend my garden.
In Voltaire's satire Candide, the title character ends by moving with his little group of people to the country, and concentrating on tending his garden. It's a metaphor for a lot of things.
Here is some of the garden I am tending.
