“I read. I think reading makes you more intelligent and helps you understand the highs and lows of the human soul, which in turn helps you to better understand yourself.”

Marion,

Don't forget the manure you seem to have an over abundance of.

I thought it was pretty funny. Chill out Bone. When he's talking out of his ass then call him on it. In cases like this, simply enjoy the moment.

I suppose you place yourself on a gelatinous substance in a petrie dish and then put yourself in a warm, moist setting for a couple of weeks.

As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden.

In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.

There will be growth in the spring!

ha ha...I love the people that are too offended by the perceived stupidity of this question to answer it. Reading and etiquette are a few hobbies. A little bit of gossip is good for, too.

Knowing that Marion admits to a love of being plowed, like a vast, open prairie, should suffice for today's lesson in cultivation. It's a special self-awareness dish with a side of sharing, that can only be prepared after a proper "plowing."

Marion,

I hope you don't get carpel tunnel from all of your self-cultivation

Fuad Hazaea Experience is the essence of cultivation. The more varied experiences you have, the more cultivated you are. Try new things, hang out with intellectual people, attend events and presentations and discover the world around you.
