APPARENTLY I AM RUBBING OFF ON ANDRE–or maybe he was always into woo-woo (more likely). After just shy of two years blogging here together, I get this week’s doodle with an email explanation: “Over the weekend,” wrote Andre Jordan, A Way to Garden’s South Dakota correspondent, “I tried to express how to some people (YOU), the garden and gardening is so much bigger than just ‘exterior design.’ It’s a very spiritual and humbling experience. Something way too big to capture in a simple doodle…
“And so I said very little,” his email continued, “and hoped (as I tend to do with my more serious doodles about depression) that people such as yourself would understand the enormous thing I did not try to say. If that makes sense?
“I shall get back to my slightly passive aggressive doodling now. Ha. I am currently drawing a ladies bottom. I am as yet unsure how this will eventually become a garden doodle.”
Stay tuned, dear readers. Next week promises to be a doozy. (I love my Andre emails almost as much as my Andre doodles, frankly. Well, except ones like this Quantum Physics Diagram, which actually does relate to gardening…and about 500 others.)
Thanks for being Andre, Andre. And yes, of course it makes sense. xoxoxox
