From Lessons Learned in Life
Love is not just about finding the right person, but creating right relationship and one of the most essential building blocks for a strong relationship is understanding. As Paul Tournier pointed out, “Between love and understanding there is a very close link…He who loves understands, and he who understands loves. One who feels understood feels loved, and one who feels loved feels sure of being understood.”
Understanding and acceptance are the essence of love. If you cannot understand and accept, you cannot truly love another person.

Family isn’t always blood.
It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs;
The ones who accept you for what you are.
The ones who would do anything to see you smile;
And who love you no matter what.

Hard times are like a washing machine:
They twist, Turn and Knock us around,
BUT in the end we come out Cleaner,
Brighter and Better than before
THE END 🙂

Seattle’s First Urban Food Forest Will Be Open To Foragers
Now, Washington state has jumped on the foraging bandwagon with plans to develop a 7-acre public plot into a food forest. The kicker? The lot sits smack in the middle of Seattle.
The idea is to give members of the working-class neighborhood of Beacon Hill the chance to pick plants scattered throughout the park – dubbed the Beacon Food Forest. It will feature fruit-bearing perennials — apples, pears, plums, grapes, blueberries, raspberries and more.
A Food Forest is a gardening technique or land management system that mimics a woodland ecosystem but substitutes in edible trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. Fruit and nut trees are the upper level, while below are berry shrubs, edible perennials and annuals. Companions or beneficial plants are included to attract insects for natural pest management while some plants are soil amenders providing nitrogen and mulch. Together they create relationships to form a forest garden ecosystem able to produce high yields of food with less maintenance.
