I’m going to fight MS with a pair of secateurs. Take that, progressive incurable disease. Snip. Begone monster relapse! Snip…
I don’t think there’s much point ‘fighting’ a non-sentient medical condition. I do think there’s a point in trying to raise money for research into treatments and a cure.
So I’m challenging myself to do ‘something in the garden’ for the next 30 days, and share the results. I’m having a relapse which is leaving me unable to do very much for more than about 25 minutes before things get very wobbly and I feel sick. But 25 minutes is time worth spending in the garden and we’ve got to put it to bed.
The broom bit the dust yesterday. I think it passed over a while ago but I hoped the twigs would come back to life.
(I haven’t mastered image sizing and alignment yet)
I like gardening — it’s a place where I find myself when I need to lose myself.
