What strikes me most about this is the vision and effort of one person transformed urban decay into something beautiful. Two decades of work created something organic in a concrete jungle. And it was destroyed by the government in an hour. Now, I’m not going off on an anti-government rant here, there’s more to the story than the Man getting you down. That said, I do think there is a moral here, a parable that we can learn from. Check it out and let me know what you think.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.View all of Dan Granot's posts.
