Growing my life: Older, slightly wiser, I've come to realize that what I want in my life is not youthfulness but usefulness. Now that I am alone again, without my beloved partner, I must rediscover my path.
I am an artist, a gardener and love to cook. Somehow, I would blend the three things into a place that allows me to create and nurture art to share, in a garden setting. I visualize art that can be touched, climbed on, used to make noises or music. Gardens should be accessible to everyone, to pick, touch, roll around in and whenever possible, to taste and eat as well. Can we grow vegetables and herbs in the middle of playgrounds and parks? What about hills of low growing herbs to roll down and run over? Pole bean forts and sunflowers amidst wind harps: that’s what I’d like to grow. A project for artists: older and retired and youngsters with nimble hearts and hands.
