The Meandering Pond

I’ve talked about The Meandering Pond before, but I’ve never described it and why it’s so important. For one thing, I never intended to create an extended pond when I first terraformed my garden, but when a 1200sqm plot opened up directly behind the existing garden I saw a chance to expand the forest. At first I extented the existing pond into a stream that went behind the forest into the new land, and this led to that and I had a system of ponds.

The Meandering Pond has a nice ring to it I think; it evokes Zen-like notions of flowing water finding it’s way along a circuitous route. The Meandering Pond was really a feature that evolved and was never planned. And naming the pond was a process of discovery as well. Since the beginning of the pond, I’ve wondered where the fresh blue waters came from, so this weekend I created a bubbling source of fresh water being fed by and underground river.

See the churning, active water just beyond the boulders? That’s the source of fresh waters.

I began working on the current version of my garden about nine months ago, after moving it from next door, Gyaltsen. Each week, I seem to find new details that need to be added. I can’t explain the process, things just reveal themselves to me. The source of my ponds had been on my mind for many months. I had considered a waterfall, but still it would need a source; also, a waterfall is beautiful but not necessarily serene. Anyway, that’s all I have to say about the garden today.

Last night, Leanna and I sat in that secret hut in the Retreat area. We talked and talked as we do so often. We never run out of topics to discuss. Yesterday, I had moved the lovely set of chimes LeLe had given me to a spot just across from the hut. The sounds were so lovely, chimes, crickets, birds and the flowing waters of The Meandering Pond.
