Slow Living

Taking care of my plants. Taking care of my plants reminds me of the importance of taking care of ourselves. Living in the digital age, this gesture grounds me when I pay attention to my surrounding beings, be present and still. Be it seeding, watering or pruning, this enduring process is meditative and cathartic in the attentive act of nurturing. I especially enjoy checking in with my plants in the morning: to begin my day by connecting with my plants, welcoming the morning light and envisioning possibilities for the new day.
