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.
