This mini book ‘Gardening on the Curve’ illustrates a process that encourages the gardener to consider using more of the curve in their gardening. The text presents some options and does not ask the gardener to take them on wholeheartedly but consider the relationships between the curve and nature, Chi flow, and we being part of them.
To separate from a modern day lifestyle is to separate from those pressures and return to something of nature, be it for a few minutes or a day. Connectedness to nature allows us to keep a ‘foot in each door’ and introduces balance into our lives.
It provides a separation from worlds that are moving across to mass urbanisation, technology and digitised personal communication. These worlds signify ‘Yang’ and are gathering to create ‘Yang Worlds’, an unknown and ‘product’ of mankind. These worlds are new or in the first generation of their existence.
For people to maintain balance and equilibrium in their life, I suggest something of nature has to be recognised and taken within, and as such, offers a gateway to sustainability and harmony.
