Sometimes, I HAVE to shovel the driveway, Sometimes I GET to shovel the driveway.
When it snows and the car must be available, I go out and clear the driveway. Now these days I have a snow blower that takes a lot of the work out of it. I like how I can carve an edge with it and make cool pathways, even though it is a little sloppy it does the job. that's when I HAVE to do it usually a day or two later I GET to do the driveway This time with a trusty shovel and a little imagination.
Now most of my neighbors do what they have to, sometimes that isn't very much. That's cool to each their own, as for me
you might see me out in my driveway shoveling tiny amounts of snow and placing it just so, making rounded edges and straight lines. they think I'm meticulous, they think I'm overdoing it as they watch from their warm living rooms, what they don't know is that for a little while I'm just a kid playing in the snow.
" It's not cause I have to,
It's cause I want to."

The other day I was walking to work through the ninja garden and noticed a bike track in the snow, My mind always wonders when some one has been in the woods. did they see it? did they like it? did they care?
As I was walking along, pondering, I came upon I.L.Y.K. scattered all over the snow. I looked around and noticed many other pieces had been kicked and broken. why would someone do that? strange, to destroy something that has nothing to do with anything. Was it the Bike rider? who knows. the next day I was walking through the woods again and went to another area and found Truck tire tracks through the woods
driving like a maniac dodging trees and over headstones in the cemetery. not only tearing up the land,
But somebody went out of there way to walk to EVERY stump art and smash and trash them, Strange.
The beauty of Ninja gardening is that it is temporary and ever evolving, so to think that this hater of beauty can have any effect on the garden is laughable for it just gives me a fresh canvas on witch I can paint my master peace.
Peace in Y'all
