On Morning Edition Sunday, I was taken by the story of composer Robert Kyr., who draws his inspiration from the environment that surrounds the Monastery of Christ in the Desert, near Abiquiu, New Mexico, where he retreats to create his music. The story is lovely, and a comment John Burnett made struck me: “It is said that beauty lubricates the spirit.” “Oh yes,” I murmured, “yes it does.”

It’s the desire for beauty that propels me out to dig into the earth around me and create a personalized landscape of glorious flowers and lush trees. And then there’s Beach Haven.
