This is total Buddhism, folks. Despite the hijab covering her head, and her Palestinian djellabah, this Muslim woman is practicing the most Buddhist of actions: living in the moment, making it into peace and beauty.
She has taken tear gas canisters, thrown over several years in clashes between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians, and converted them into potting containers for flowers. She waters them by hand, in her garden near Ramallah.
But I suspect I’ve a long, far road to walk before then. In the mean time? It’s a goal for all of us. Make a garden where you are. Turn anger and hatred into beauty. If she can, we all can.
