"If you want me again look for me under your boot soles."
~ Walt Whitman ~
I love the smell of dark, rich, Virginia soil, and the feel of it, the heat it contains from the day's sun, or the moisture from rain. I love digging in it and planting flowers and vegetables. Living in New Mexico, I've missed it, and am grateful to be back where I can wash it out from under my fingernails and bury herbs in it, and begonias, and anything I choose.
I ground myself in rich soil.
