Dreamt that I was asking my landlord about making an herb spiral garden ala Bill Mollison, here. Even though it isn't my place....I have to say that i think ownership of stuff is overrated, although it seems to be a highly esteemed concept in our culture. The garden would be just as beautiful and functional regardless of whether or not it's "mine".

And the stupid thing, and maybe why some people don't like trees especially, is that we really cannot own these things. We die and they live on beyond us. The only way to assert our ownership over them is to cut them down. Ownership is a human concept...and I think probably one that is not shared by all cultures, either.
