This is not a real post, just a note.
Last Monday in An outbreak of gardening at Astrolabe Road I reported on my plans to develop my garden here. In response, kvd wrote:
I do enjoy Ramana's comments! He lends some sort of philosophical credence to my own view on things - and I'm always grateful for that.
I see weeds, and grass, and a chair.
Now bearing in mind that my own experience (philosophy?) tells me that there is no job too small that it couldn't benefit from a supervisor, I hereby volunteer to observe your efforts.
I hesitated about responding because I have done so little. But, hey, this is a chat among friends and I did promise to report on progress.
This is the same bed with the first plants in. I am calling the chair kvd's chair. I imagine kvd in it, drinking beer and observing on life.
As I report on progress, I will carry the chair around with me, That way kvd will be there in sprit as supervisor, if not actually present. Mind you, I will have to drink his share of the beer. Still, that's a hardship that I can live with!
