    Somehow I missed this thread, so I'm going to try to start it back up as this is thoroughly enjoyable:

    Nature is a revelation of God,
    Art is a revelation of man

    - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    This could just as well read "gardening is a revelation of man"

    Do not go where the path may lead.
    Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail....

    This is from one of my all-time favorite books, "Dirt" by William Bryant Logan.

    "Holes are the archetypal place of discovery. Who needs to travel thousands of miles to find the new? The most mysterious place on Earth is right beneath our feet."

    He goes on to write, "There are holes for putting in. You put in seed, rootballs, drainage tiles, foundations, treasure, dog turds, the dead.

    There are holes for taking out. You take out water, potash, peat, kaolin, potatoes, zinc, oil, the hidden treasures, the ancient dead.

    Whatever has come out will eventually go back in again, Whatever has gone in will sooner or later come back out. And I, with my spade or my trowel or my two bare hands, may be the hole's Balboa."
