Friend (28) – The backyard friends

Posted on Updated on

Backyard is not only a place for laundry or cooking matters.  Backyard is a place where I could natters and observes my green friends grow.  Though, space is a concern and constraint, we have to live with it.  To me, space is not about how much you own, it’s all about how much you’re optimizing it.

 We can’t change the size of the box, but we are able to change the setting within.  A potted plant wouldn’t obstruct our movement so much.  But when you feel so sick about the piled up laundry and the undone dishes, take a glance at this little green fairy, it’s smiling at you.  You would be sure, all along you are not doing the mundane work alone.

 后院不止是一个可以让我们晾衣服与展示厨艺的地方,它也是一个提供我们与绿色朋友交流的地方。虽然无法改变空间,还要去适应它。但对我而言,空间不在于你拥有多少,而是你利用了多少。

当然,外在的局限我们无法改变,我们也只好从内在的设计着手。就好比放一小盆植物,相信它不会占用你多少空间。而它的魅力就是当你把厨房的工作看做叠成山的碗碟当儿,你无意识地看它一眼,这绿色仙子其实在对着你微笑。这时你才了解你不是孤独的。
