About The Garden

Ahhh, soft and clear as the voice in our heads is the truth about human existance. The life we now enjoy has evolved from a much simpler one. It was an evolution that had to be. But what about tomorrow asks Daniel Quinn, author of the book, Ishmael. Will we now evolve with the awareness that our quality of life depends on the biosphere we live in? All creatures are in this together. The whole garden needs a whole gardener it seems.

—Joe Young

The Garden

Ahhh! Soft sweet music.
Each of us here has a voice.
It's time that we use it.
These are my brothers.
The eagle the whale and the dog,
And so many others.
Back to the garden retracing our steps.
Oh what a story it tells.
We can save the world from ourselves!

Why must we hurry?
Safe in the arms of the world,
why should we worry?
So much to offer.
Join with the leavers again.
Live long and prosper!
Back to the garden retracing our steps.
Let go and soon we'll be there.
We can save ourselves because we care!

Ahhh! Soft sweet music.

The eagle the whale and thedog,
And so many others.
Back to the garden retracing our steps.
Let go and soon we'll be there.
We can save ourselves because we care!

Hello! So good to see you!
Your eyes see there's a change in me.
New day, just a bit closer.
Some day we'll all live a life that's free!
