Day 15: Unsolicited Beauty, Chesed in Tiferet
Our next door neighbor Pam is an awesome gardener. She's also head landscaper for Citizen's Bank Park (not the groundskeeper who works on the turf -- she makes the park itself beautiful with flowers, shrubs and trees).
I don't think she gardens for altruistic reasons, but her work improves the spirits of the neighborhood.
We often think of destructive internal desires that lead people towards various transgressions. But what about the driving internal forces that lead people toward making life better? I think that Pam's gardening is likely an example of that.
I hope also that this omer journal is an example of that.
On this day of Chesed in Tiferet I hope to unloosen my desires that make the world a better place.
