Cultivate the Garden Within -



The Pacific Sun this week has an article on San Quentin and their popular gardening program, founded by Beth Waitkus.  The Insight Garden Program has had to turn inmates away.   She begins one day with a poem, "To Look at Any Thing" by John Moffitt.

    To Look at Any Thing

    To look at any thing,
    If you would know that thing,
    You must look at it long;
    To look at the green and say,
    'I have seen spring in these
    Woods' will not do - you must
    Be the thing you see .....
