Arithmetic, Population, & Energy

Al Bartlett University of Colordao Physics professor  by Daily Camera

A friend posted this on my facebook wall this morning and it hi-jacked me for the last hour.  I wasn’t really planning to watch something like this at 4:45 in the morning on Chistmas Eve Eve/Winter Solstice morning but in my state of last minute holiday planning and bustle, and at a time when I always wish I had a little more brain power left for introspection and thoughtful consideration, this has helped me to look past the hype of the next few days and start to move into a time of year I always cherish.
That time of year is the deep winter darkness (I have a dear friend who has recently been referring to it as the ‘fertile darkness’ – a phrase I love that refers to planting the seeds that will grow as the light returns) where I can think, re-organize, evaluate, and be a little quieter.
If you have an extra hour, or can find some minutes here and there that will eventually add up to an hour, I would encourage you to watch this video series. And if you take the time to do so, drop a comment here, I would love to chat about it with you.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
