  • Things happen differently at the Green House. The passage of time slows. Events unfold without reason. Magic occurs when you least expect it.

    So I happened outside on a lovely Saturday morning and found this gnome waving to me. A tiny being in a vast universe, he seemed oblivious but happy. The big issues that threaten to destroy this world pass him by. Perhaps he chooses to focus on things nearer at hand.

    I waved back and, just for a moment, felt a tiny bit happier.
