Thoughts by Kimatni D. Rawlins
I vividly recall cleaning yards in the hood of Camden, NJ starting at 8 years old with my cousin Vince. Now I can enjoy a few good books in the serenity of our Japanese garden which I designed after studying the Orient art form (contrast of stone and vegetation) and nourishing our grasses, bushes, shrubs and trees with the nutrients they need to grow strong while providing us with clean oxygen. They key is a strict fertilization schedule — especially in the fall and a slow release fertilizer early winter — aerating, water, and love!
This quarantine will be no problem for I and I, as the goal is to slow down, be still, observe, and value what the Most High has blessed us with while enjoying family more. Humans have lost focus and purpose in life which should not be centralized on rapid acceleration, incessant urbanization and development, robotic takeover, technology beyond imagination, etc etc.
Deforestation alone is literally killing us and the animal population while bringing deadly diseases and viruses into our domain. You’ve destroyed bats’ and other exotic creatures’ homes and now look. Humans have once again altered the ecosystem for the worse in exchange for more profits.
Like Robert “Nesta” Marley said, Simmer Down!
