the city, where people live, are houses,
and around them are gardens and nature
strips. I will whisper into a human heart
their gladness at creation. I will see if any
hearts can hear.
Rehabilitation Diary of Henry,
also found on Meta-Sheep
Drench Thumb Drive
So, that's it then. Doctor says it is very,
very serious. It will be touch and go. Up
to me in the end, my call. So give me the
medicine and I'll take it, I says. No, it's not
only that, she says, you have to change
everything. Are you up for this? she asks
me. You could die, she says, sweet as an
angel but she means it. She almost has
All right, I hear you. Give me my
pills, I say, and then what does this doctor
do? Prescribes all my medication and
says, for after everything stabilises and
she gives the go-ahead, one garden. One
garden? I says. Yes, she says: when you are
better we will get you down to the native
nursery garden. Ask what used to grow
naturally in your suburb, she says, and
plant it around your place, and leave a
patch for your vegies and grow some.
Prints out a prescription that gives the
addresses of three places with native plants
near me. Garden? I said to her. For your
heart, she said. Reckon if I'd said I was in
a unit she'd prescribe me a herb garden.
Even on my little block? I say. The heart
knows no bounds, she says.
Well, all right, I admit it, I wasn't going
back to work for a while, GFC 1, 2, and 2.5
on the way, not even Greenspan thinks it
can be fixed. So when a few of the physical
emergencies were properly dealt with, I
went round the nurseries, learned about
mulching, laid it all down in the yard, dug
in a few local varieties of grevillea this and
melaleuca that, and the doctor said not to
overdo it, just enjoy it, and strange as it
sounds (and luckily it's only this diary will
see this) I even like getting up early and
just kind of standing there and enjoying it.
And I've started to notice which direction
the wind comes from, and wondering
about the cement factory just down the
But what surprised me, when I was
just setting it up, and had the banksia still
in the pot ready to plant, up came a honey
eater right in front of me, and had a suck
of the nectar and flew away. Now I see the
birds in the garden all the time, and when
I'm walking or driving around, I notice the
plants in other people's gardens and am
amazed how many lawns still there are
and how do they keep it up and why do
they bother, but I laugh instead of being
grumpy. That's changed. Then I'm
thinking: I should join that gardening
group I saw up at the nursery. Last night I
was tucking into some salad I've grown and
the missus says to me, "You're humming,"
and I tell her, I am not. The last time I
hummed was when I was a kid, I says.
"Well you sound as happy as one now,"
* If you would be happy all your life -- plant
a garden (traditional saying).
'Now I see the birds in the
garden all the time, and when
I'm walking or driving around,
I notice the plants in other
people's gardens ...'

found on this planet contain near perfect ratios of
