Rockin’ the Purple

Playing with concrete creations, learning garden design, puttin’ purple in my hair, and that’s just this year.

I’ve had an interesting life so far and have had a richness that I appreciate only now, at 54.

I want to tell how it feels to remove myself from chronic injury, pain, and illness as I work with concrete.  How mixing the concrete reminds me that I understand it a little because I’ve been a baker most of my life.  It helps to be fearless and to have a constant How hard could it be? attitude.

There’s a reason I studied Chinese in college and excelled at it.  It plays directly into garden design–the Chinese characters have life and meaning, rules, and art.  Garden design is like that–understand the language of design, be artful, work within prescribed limits, and take joy in the expression of the intricacies.
