is thought of as a transformation process. Usually involving"wisdom."
I now view "about us" which I am not, as floating towards an epitaph.How
many of you have given thought to your own. That epitaph is notmine
of course but I look upon what I wrote a few years agowith
Since then four friendshave died,
one of ALS and I was very involved with hissad journey.
The unexpected would hit me the next year and change much about
my life. Becoming disabled ended my pry bar, maul and pick-axingdays.
I can still do lapidary, so I began learning about silver smithing
and wire wrapping.
Strangely enough, a note I put into a future article on Obsidianwas
Sagittarius,most of my
signs were in the fire houses - major issues with that. Fireis
often misunderstood, but as a (non-sedimentary) rock hound I do
gravitate to theIgneous, so
obsidian really fascinates me. Fire is viewed as an elementof
destruction. Most alchemical teachers believe that it has dominionover
other provinces and reflects change for. My life has notbeen one ofstabilization
into new forms (conglomerate), nor has it beensedimentary.
The last years of illness and being reformed were to beendured 2013
may be a year of transformation into something better.
my “about us” from a few years back:SkylineNursery
opened in 1982 with the hopes of growing and introducing newand
useful plants to the Pacific Northwest – namely to the OlympicPeninsula
and to Sequim particularly. Where they all of merit? Willthey appeal
to customers? Sometimes they did not. I began with afascination
of rock garden and alpine plants, but soon added acollection of
perennials and interesting woody plants. Native plantsand Xericape
choices became the next interest, as I am beginning tofocus on the
need to deal with an ever-drying climate. Sequim isbasically a
desert island in a sea of Pacific Northwest climate zones.
hope you will find in the plant links something of interest. They arewell
grown and many are rarely offered. Within this website I hope to introduce
you to many new and useful choices. For those customersliving on the
Olympic Peninsula I ask you to visit, I am open by
I am always happy to assist you in making appropriatechoices,
and to that end I have created a gardensite that
might answer some of your growing questions.
I hopesome of the
articles will also give you a chuckle, and sometimes evokea
memory or even a tear. You see, many of my repeat customers have now passed
on or cannot garden anymore. Every day I miss their critiques,guidance
and silenced voices. You will find posts to them in the blogon
note that one should check ahead before visiting. This is a yearof
cleanup and remembrances, and
noting that perhaps, this site is my own epitaph.
