There’s one thing that I always notice and miss when I’m away from home: the green. I am incredibly lucky to be living in a place that has so much nature everywhere.
Even just a short walk from my apartment, I find myself in a little bit of heaven. A small retreat that’s there whenever you want it.
I’ve seen adults gathered around having picnics. I’ve seen kids playing. I’ve seen people watching as their dogs romp around in the grass. And I’ve stood in the welcoming embrace of the green.
It may not be blooming all year, but even in the winter, the plants wait for their chance to shine.
And it amazes me how the plants adapt to whatever structures they encounter. How it has grown so strong around the metal building. How it now depends upon it for support, just as the building depends upon the plants for its life.
I love the life in this city. The one that breathes from the roots all the way to the leaves.
