The Meaning of Life, Part 74


Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?

Seeing a Douglas Adams quote always makes me smile.

But I do believe in Fairies! I do! I Do!

I can feel spirits in gardens --

Has Sea Raven gone off the deep end? No. It's all about metaphor. The trick is to live the metaphor without making it literal.

If more of us lived in a metaphor like God's Covenant rule of non-violent distributive justice-compassion, the world would be a better place.

The Fairies in my garden are definitely of that variety . . .

I do love metaphorical fairies. I even like to say it! Good points!
