In my garden...

by Izzy Winterhart

"In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.
My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.
The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers,
and the dreams are as beautiful."
~Abram L. Urban

I admire Staci for holding on to items associated to memories.
I'm not really one to hold on to things.
I think I've swept the memories of my childhood out the door
along with whatever else was associated to it.
Same with most of my life.
Spending the years prior to meeting my husband
as a nomad has taught me to have few possessions.

But now I'm living a new life.
A beautiful life.
And everything before meeting Mr. Wonderful
I refer to as my past life.

The things I hold near and dear now are
Mr. Wonderful,
my dog and two cats,
my beautiful home,
and my growing garden.

My sentimentality now runs
through, around and into my roots.
And I've planted these roots
into this new life, family, home
and amazing love.
My roots grow deep into the soil
of my life's garden.

Thank you Staci for this Art Spark.
It has sparked much appreciation
for the things I hold closest to my heart.

Thanks for sharing that Izzy. I have many ideas regarding sentiment. I started to make one.... It didn't work out. It's sitting in the studio on my bench to remind me start again. The first time turned out to be practice ;o)
