I live on a sea of sand and alkali patches, in a barren desert, at the far end of a small sprawling community in Northern Nevada. Desolate, wind swept country. This is my hard won slice of paradise. Against all odds, I cultivate trees, flowers, vegetables, peace and contentment. This is my garden in the sun.

May I acquire the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
The courage to change the things I cannot accept,
and the wisdom, to know the difference.
