The Gardener


     "I am like a gardener, sorting the weeds from the flowers, 
and I have the problem common to all gardeners.  
Sometimes it is not only the weeds that need to go, 
some flowers must be sacrificed
 in order to allow those that remain to flourish. 

It has always interested me,
 that as one travels the plants that one has come to know as weeds, 
are favoured flowers in another place,
 and vice versa. 

The classifications are subjective.

The process of selection continues 
as the crises of identity presents each new challenge."

Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
