I have recently found a blog I am constantly enchanted by. Its author is a bit of a recluse whose world has become his garden. I especially love two posts in which he talks about his tender care of struggling plants, goldfish found nearly dead under encasements of ice, and his favorite koi, Getsumei (which means Moonlight) newcomer to his pond, who had to be taught how to eat fish food.

Mr. Livingstone, the author of this blog, doesn’t have a reblog button, but he’s given assent to my posting links to a few of his blogs.

In this first link are photos of his garden, along with his story of the struggling little hosta, buried upside down:

And my favorites,  the photos and stories about the gorgeous ghost koi Moonlight, are here:

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I was immediately drawn to this post as it spoke of a recluse (with a global available website) who was focused on his garden, the lack of a reblog button, and the koi. Thank you.
