Re:Aroid free


Perhaps it is the desire to heal the need for the addiction. Some do not get
bit quite so hard and find in time that the care and feeding of the children
is quite a chore that at times is overwhelming. Dewey, you have been there
and I sure am there. That does not mean that one does not love them or want
them, just a major reality check that a thousand plants is quite a chore to
tend what with heat and then there comes the cold and all that brings. There
is no end. Very much like children but they grow up and leave. I think it is
a bit harsh to hit David that way. A bit of compassion and gratitude for all
those years of his generosity and kindness might just be in order, say
nothing of understanding. Say nothing about the wonderful chatty Newsletters
he put out even when his shoulder was killing him after the earthquake.
Perhaps those of us who remember, might take a lesson or two from a dear
friend.
