I recently went to a lecture at my local library about gardening and how to grow flowers/vegetables in our dry climate. About five minutes into the lecture/discussion I realized that I was in way over my head. These women discussed gardening with the same passion that I discuss the biomechanics of the subtalor joint. I finally worked up the courage to ask a question and I think it was quite apparent that I was not totally sure what I was doing, but I figured I was never going to learn if I did not ask questions. What happened after the meeting was a beautiful example of people, who are passionate about what they do, wanting to share their knowledge. Three separate people invited me over to their homes to teach me how to garden in an arid climate and offered to share plants with me.
