Paradise at last!

Many different religions believe in life after death, and living in a heavenly paradise. Some believe in an earthly paradise. John Lennons "Imagine" speaks of a an earthly paradise. Books and movies may display paradise. But if you could imagine it for yourself, what would your paradise be like?

      LOL, actually you just described a contemporary garden of Eden, AKA a religions view of paradise here on earth.

      Being at one with nature is key in achieving a paradise state of mind, and is something I strive for every day. But like with all things it needs to be in balance, yin-yang, nature-tech, black-white, hard work-relaxation, good-evil, etc-etc.

      I just planted 6 double-knockout rose bushes that surround a butterfly bush in a 12’ diameter raised flowerbed I built with cinder-blocks. And to stay imbalance next project is plumbing and rain-gutters, from something I enjoy to something a hate, from something I will enjoy looking at for a long time to something I will hopefully never see. (yin-yang)
