come wrapped in the quietest of moments.”

Irrigation Timer
 

Our yard and patio have a lot of drought-resistant plants, including several types of cactus and succulents. Additionally, we have a few tropical plants that need regular watering, even during the monsoon season. Irrigation being irrigation, meaning problematic, I routinely have to replace sections of PVC flexible hose. Since we will be gone for a little over three weeks, I’ve been working to minimize any potential problems. In the past couple of weeks, I have repaired four leeks and yesterday replaced the timer.

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, “Is it good, friend?”
“It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;
 
“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said: “Is it good, friend?”
“It is bitter – bitter,” he answered;
“But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart.”
