Yesterday Mayaoel and I began to plan a peace garden we will plant in my flowerbed out back. I wanted an outdoor altar, and this seems like a good way to frame it. So far it just has jasmine growing on the fence. We will plant peace roses, lavender and other flowering, aromatic things. We’ll add a statue of Buddha or Kwanyin or the Virgin, and a clay bowl for sand, shells, candles and incense. Prayer flags, a bench and our best love. This seems a fitting project for an eight-year old and her grandmother. We’re both excited about it.
