The Garden of Hesperides

Pearls
From Irritation to Illumination

 

Suffering and difficulties are not an unknown ingredient in the life of growth and learning. A garden is a place of growth, and flowers and fruit are the expression of overcoming of the difficulties and obstacles that beset that growth. By working with these challenges, along with sources of support, wonderful things can result, as is seen in the transformation of a grain of sand into a pearl within the oyster shell, and can this not be seen as a garden of sorts?

The Oyster
I've Learned, by Andy Rooney
