TAWANDA! Time to Till!

posted by kjackson

You know what makes me happy? Garden tilling makes me happy. I relish the power of pushing a piece of heavy machinery through hard-packed soil and sod, breaking it up and making it crumbly and black. I yell, “TAWANDA!” in […]

King Kong? Godzilla? No–Kudzu!

posted by kjackson

When I was 13-years-old my family moved from the land of prairie grass and crape myrtle (Oklahoma) to the land of mimosa trees and kudzu vines (Mississippi). I’ll never forget my first glimpse of kudzu. All along the highway it […]

Like a Symphony
Sometimes I actually think :). I like to plan and compare and problem solve. Sometimes I think my way to an answer. Sometimes I make choices based solely on my gut whether the choice seems logical or not. I feel my way to an answer (I use this method more often than thinking!). Then there was
