“Let every man praise the bridge that carries him over”
Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us. We need hours of aimless wandering or spates of time sitting on park benches, observing the mysterious world of ants and the canopy of treetops.

Visit Zivah to see her thoughts on this week’s parashah.
Perfection itself is imperfection.
My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents and I lay them both at his feet.
A good garden may have some weeds.
You just have to learn not to care about the dust mites under the beds.

I can’t say enough about the community garden nestled within the valley. Between the hustle and bustle of traffic, lies a tranquil place where one can rent a plot of land to grow flowers, vegetables, fruits or landscape it in order to sit and relax in the midst of calm.
I like looking at the varied fences and gates that some gardeners have come up with. The simple ones are ones I truly enjoy, no matter their state.
I enjoy walking around the garden center, looking at the creative edge within the landscape, and enjoy coming across the varied benches, chairs and tables that are placed there. Some chairs, benches and tables, are placed specifically in a plot or just outside of it, and some are permanent, put up by the Los Angeles County Parks and Recreation Department.
The table and bench above is one of a few that are permanently placed within the community garden. The grandies and I love to sit here after our gardening responsibilities and have a snack and a drink.
I enjoyed the pop of red of the chair against the white in the photo above.
