If just for a night

coryThis is Cory. I met him last night on my way to a play at a theater by my guerrilla garden. My life changed dramatically a few months ago and I hadn’t seen the garden since then. It was an absolute mess, despite my efforts to ensure its ongoing care. I was freshly showered and dressed up yet found myself with dirt under my nails, fixing things. Cory came by. He said, “Is that spearmint I smell?” We got to talking. He left with a handful of kale. The garden mattered again — I mattered — if just for a night.

    1. Hi, Phyllis!!! Thanks for reading and commenting. Yes, I made it to the show, but I woke up worried about that little garden. There is no one to love it right now. I may go back and toss some pollinator flower seeds so the butterflies and bees take care of it, and it takes care of them.
