new video: ‘i garden because i can’t help myself’

WHEN THE SOULS WERE HANDED OUT, I was given the one of gardener. This reading from my new book “And I Shall Have Some Peace There,” accompanied by video from my world, explains that I garden because I cannot help myself. You?

    Hi Margaret
    Your video is lovely, I only wish I lived closer so I could hear you in person. What a great comparison of meditation and gardening—of course. I cannot imagine surviving without the solace of gardening. I work at a shelter for abused women and am attempting to introduce gardening as a peaceful healing adjunct to the other heaing activities we try to offer to th women and children who stay with us.
    When I come homeat the end of a day of listening to painful and hopeful stories it is my garden that most surely reconnects me to nature, definitely a survival strategy for me.
    . I have ordered your book and am looking forward o reading it.. I admire your courage. I hope it does very well. Again many thanks for the inspiration and connection.

  2. Hi Margaret,

    I so enjoyed being read too. Thanks so much for the universal realities brought on by the garden. Life, happiness, spiritual growth and death. I’ve learned that the garden is my teacher and without it I don’t grow.
    All the best.

      Welcome, Gloria. Will have more podcasts of readings and maybe videos of them coming up. Nice of you to be so kind! See you soon.

    Hi Margaret,
    I found your blog by chance a couple years ago and have looked at it daily ever since.
    Then I realized you had written a book by the same title. Bought it! Loved it! So, of course I had to have to next book. Bought it! I got to page 2 and decided to put it down until this weekend when I don’t have to! If you’re working on book #3, I will buy that one too! I haven’t been disappointed yet! I wish I lived closer to you as I would love to come to some of your speaking engagements and your garden tours, but Wisconsin is too far!

    Thanks again for being there when I need alittle something!

    Thanks, Margaret.
    On New Years eve I walked out of 25 years of corporate life, no plan, no direction, no NOTHING. Just the ache of “when will I ever get to THAT?”

    It’s taken 6 months for it to sink in.
    Now I am painting my garage ceiling…perhaps to sell the house…for my next mysterious journey.

    Just saw your book at library…read it…and wanted to thank you letting me know it will take TIME for me to see where all of this will lead me. My spending habits have done a 180 but I am buying your book for comfort and courage.

    I’m NOT crazy, as has been suggested!
    Although I enjoy being thought of as a renegade. Thanks again,
