That is your person

I love this:

"It’s that thing when you’re with someone and you love them and they know it, and they love you and you know it, but it’s a party! And you’re both talking to other people and you’re laughing and shining and you look across the room and catch each other’s eyes. But…but not because you’re possessive or it’s precisely sexual but because that is your person in this life. And it’s funny and sad but only because this life will end. And it’s this secret world that exists right there in public unnoticed that no one knows about. It’s sort of like how they say that other dimensions exist all around us, but we don’t have the ability to perceive them. That’s…that’s what I want out of a relationship or just life, I guess."

-- Frances Handley (Greta Gerwig) in Frances Ha

Am having that relationship with my garden.

Several of my friends are too.

My garden is a moat of grace in my life.

Zero clue how to do life without it.

Need a person? Hardly. Instead, it is the love, joy, kindness, learned in my garden that has attracted an incredible man into my life.

Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
