I was out in the garden this morning, something I do way too little of, and it struck me how my mind was able to relax into curiosities and observations of the nature occurring at my fingertips. From noticing the intricate web of weed roots to the bold beauty of a springtime flower in full bloom. My inner commentary turned its attention to the granularity of the soil and the wonderings of how to help it along. So much more peaceful than contemplating things such as the household budget or the latest media buzz.
Then it occurred to me, that being in the garden Plot restores sanity. It brings the mind back to reality where the laws of the universe apply so perfectly.
So therefore, if being in the Plot means enhanced sanity then being out of the Plot must mean diminished sanity. So then does to lose the Plot altogether mean utter insanity?
I wonder if that is where the saying came from?
