Do Nothing

I read a book a few weeks ago.  The scenario was a middle-aged man and woman getting to know one another.  She was asking about his relationship with his grown son. The man said they didn't have much of one and when she asked what happened, he came out with that pat answer about growing apart.

So, what's the one thing you must do to ensure your garden will have weeds? 

Nothing.  No one ever has to work hard to have a garden full of weeds.  No special spray or composte necessary.  Simply do nothing and the weeds will take over, choking out everything fruitful.

It's the same with relationships.  The one sure-fire way to make sure a marriage falls apart is to neglect it.  To make sure your children stop talking to you, just stop talking to them.  If you wonder what ever happened to your best friend from college, ask yourself who stopped calling.

It's easier to do nothing sometimes.  But a regular habit of it will ensure everything fruitful will die.

Got any garden work to do?

  1. I took my grandmother some flowers today! I thought of it as "weed killer". It felt good to get a few out of my garden! ;)
