Writer's Garden

Overview

If there is anywhere on earth where metaphor flourishes and parables abound, it is in the garden -- any garden, any size. For Ethel Pochocki the garden is a parallel world. It's a stage upon which the drama of life, from birth to death and the journey between, is played out. Here in this schoolroom, courtroom, sanctuary of healing, we dig for ethical solutions; we try to do no harm, accept defeat with grace and triumph with modesty -- and, always, as Emily Dickinson puts it, we "dwell in possibility."

Overview

If there is anywhere on earth where metaphor flourishes and parables abound, it is in the garden -- any garden, any size. For Ethel Pochocki the garden is a parallel world. It's a stage upon which the drama of life, from birth to death and the journey between, is played out. Here in this schoolroom, courtroom, sanctuary of healing, we dig for ethical solutions; we try to do no harm, accept defeat with grace and triumph with modesty -- and, always, as Emily Dickinson puts it, we "dwell in possibility." With the delicious anticipation of a writer coming to a blank sheet of paper, Ethel Pochocki presents us with a warmly human and charmingly wise collection of essays, stories and poems. With the know-how of a master gardener and the artistry of a master writer, she invites us to create our gardens and grow our own crop of parables.
