What is your Word?
For a techie it might be ADAPT. (It also might be for a parent ...)
For a workaholic...it might be LAUGH
As a burn-out preventative, it might be EQUINIMITY.
Words are doors into perception. Or windows that convey meaning. They are sacred to most human beings. Certainly to the People of the Book i.e. the Judeo-Christian and Muslim traditions :
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was with God, and the Word was God." - Genesis
Even non-religious folks who do not believe in theism i.e. a supernatural god out there...(i.e. those thoughtful atheists)....or the classical conception of God...Even the increasingly popular category of faith called the "Spiritual and not religious." believe in words.
If we can find the right words, we can bring a mnemonic of sacredness or ease into our physical spaces...or just some good fun...
Words are both universally valued and acknowledged to be inadequate to convey the mystery of the sacred (mysterium tremendum). But they are what we have to work with...so let's use what tools we have at our disposal...Yes?.
With words we co-create our world. Poets do it with words. Gardens can too.
What are your sacred words? Or what words will make your daily life better...
As a landscape architect, not that I have anything against statuary...like a well placed Buddah or Madonna in the garden can be a very peaceful thing...but it is not as interesting as words, I think.
But the question is what do YOU think? How does it serve you in the garden.
