When a problem can't be solved, especially one that keeps you bound to a computer screen, then it's time to take a walk. Time to go to the beach in search of something you need. . .
Gardening is the triumph of hope over circumstance. The learnings are dug back into the soil, making good compost. Innovative solutions are applied. Past mistakes are forgotten and a new cycle is welcomed in with optimism.
PS Two days later a creative answer to the problem whooshed into my head like a wood pigeon descending from the sky to feed on juicy berries. I think it's going to work.
