I got a little house in East L.A. and did the gardening. I was doing some acting here and there, doing my own thing… getting back to reality.
My hobby is gardening, I love it, it’s my main hobby. I like being at home and I’m very happy being in my house, I love cooking.
I have to keep up with the scientific literature as part of my job, but increasingly I found myself reading things that weren’t really relevant to my academic work, but were relevant to gardening.
I’m pretty good at gardening. It consumes my time, and it feels like I’m doing something constructive.
I’m not surfing much anymore, but I love hiking and gardening, and I’m always wearing a hat and sunblock.

There is no gardening without humility. Nature is constantly sending even its oldest scholars to the bottom of the class for some egregious blunder.
Many talk about a guest worker program. I think most reasonable people believe that a guest worker program in the farming industry, perhaps in the gardening and landscape industries, is reasonable.
I loathe gardening, but I love gardens, and I have two beautiful gardens. I can not bear gardening, but I love gardens.
Somebody informed me recently that the key to every art, from writing to gardening to sculpture, is creativity. I beg to differ.
