Nature is quick to take back territory. Leave a garden untended for a while, and the flowers break free, creepers creep, and things overgrow.
Manicured astroturf gardens are sterile. Wild gardens buzz with life.
The Golden Gate Park in San Francisco is wilder than manicured. Some patches have been purposefully left to overgrow and flourish.
The beaches in Northern California have the same untamed nature to them. They change and shape shift daily. A walk down a beach near Tomales Bay or Jenner is like plugging into the source.
Big Sur has the same raw energy.
Seek out these wild places. Don’t try and tame them, but nurture them.
