So this is Eve. She is a basil potted plant. I was having a conversation with a friend once about our desires in life, i.e. taking time to travel with the family for leisure & enjoyment, going out more, buying those close or herbs you want - cos i love fashion & also I love fresh herbs cos they smell so good when I cook - & how these loves of ours often end up taking a backseat to things we deem, "more," important at the moment, i.e. work, etc. so we think we'll do or get to them, "later," - which ends up never happening cos we forget about them... I was cooking then & talking about the herbs it dawned on me that they probably weren't even so expensive I wonder why I don't have them & I .just wishing for them. I could have them now! With all these, "important," things, "demanding," our awareness we actually let LIFE - lovely potted herbs to eat fresh daily, lovely clothes to wear, dates with friends, trips with family, piggy-back rides with your man (YES PIGGY-BACK RIDES ARE FUN!!) pass us by!
I told Eric the buck stops here & no way am I spending any more second not having what I want now.
Saturday organic market came & there they were - potted herbs: basil, rosemary, etc. And I got Eve. And she has fed me herself since! For pasta - even for Arizona I raspberry iced tea that tasted great with her leaves! What's more, her leaves never run out! She takes little care just checking on her & giving her sun & water daily, & her leaves bloom & spread again for me to consume & it tastes so sweet! One time I left her with Kris he forgot to water her she shriveled! But when I came back I watered her & she came back to life sweeter!
She represents our dreams. Our dreams that need our time & devotion to bloom & grow so they feed us with their ecstasy & sweetness. What else is our life for? I told Eric look she is still with me now & he said you better take care of her. Eric is a friend in the US & I think he also got something valuable about our conversation.
Eve may be just a potted plant. But she isn't just that to me. She represents all our hopes & dreams we can care for today so in turn they care for us! She is everything! #dreams #love #care - 1 hour ago
