Outsider Art And The Eternal Law Of Grass

The picture below, ‘Crumble,’ is how I feel about lawn grass.

There seems to be a law which causes any grass pulled up by the roots, and left on top of the ground in a flower bed, to GROW there. It’s gloriously happy and will send out seeds almost immediately!

But just pull up grass and take it to an empty spot in my lawn, loving scrape the ground, lay the grass down, cover the roots a little with soil, or not (I’ve tried it both ways), and the result is: DEAD GRASS.

Once, believing in fate, my life rolled this way and that for seemingly no reason.  But now, as scriptures as an explanation and guide to the human condition I no longer crumble.
