Retired 70 y.o. suddenlystricken with an autoimmune disease that leaves him weak and exhausted after a little exertion. Loved to garden and make beautiful evocations of the idyllic but now relegated to spurts of activity. Not complaining, it is what it is. I needed something to do with my time so, on my last b-dayI, I decided to kill trees, and have been been doing so with great success since. Searching on line and on You Tube finally, after 10 months, I discovered Bonsai Mirai. My soul is doing its’ happy dance. OMG! So many mysteries revealed. And I’ve just begun. Optimistically looking forward toperfecting my sequoia.
