Give a man secure possession of a bleak rock, and he will turn it into a garden; give him nine years’ lease of a garden, and he will convert it into a desert. ~Arthur Young, Travels in France, 1792
This quote should be broken up a bit here.
This house was a “bleak rock” after a gunman took the life of the son of the owner..she turned that bleak rock into a garden
It seems the City has claimed that “9 year lease of a garden” and is determined to turn it into a desert.
Down the street from me we have houses who have not been touched since the storm, people who have never cut the grass..people who care not one whit for the City and those of us who live here and Robert Mendoza chooses this woman”s house as an offense..
So perhaps we should all just buy cans of paint and start to embroider the City with sidewalk art..it’s a thought.
