“On the lip of an abyss roaring with dark wind stood a tiny bush that bore an intensely red flower. The bush grew right on the very edge of nothingness, and yet somehow its roots were holding. It had a grip that no wind could disturb; it thrived there, all on its own, this modest little plant, and while the abyss yawned beside it, it went on bravely, doggedly flowering.”

Helen Garner “Notes from a Brief Friendship” 2011 p46 “Everywhere I Look” 2016

      a handle on reality, the sun comes up, the moon waxes and wane, the tides come and go, the seasons turn, gardening & stitching are a way to mend the tears
