Two Sunday’s ago I read two articles in the Courant that I enjoyed a lot.

It all came together for me during a recent walk when I crested a hill and saw a clump of shadows — branches, I thought, or were they arms? When I walked closer, I could see a gardener, kneeling, tending a vine. But where the gardener’s arm left off and the vine began seemed indeterminable. Each tends the other, I thought.
