Those who grew up in villages can be very defensive and nostalgic at the same time on mere mention of rural setting. It may not totally out of pure love towards countryside, but I suspect more for the sense of childhood familiarity. Then some of us travel far and settle down in urban areas. Creating what we love, to rekindle the childhood mood is the most sensible thing to do, thus having gardens, or at least having potted plants on the 24th story luxury condominium.
Lands are measured in acres and time is allowed to tick by the hour. That happens in rural setting. But in cosmopolitan environment, lands are accurately measured in square foot and time rushes in seconds. It is the vastness of space that allows nature to thrive, and green to continue being green. Then it is a pleasure to see time as just day or night. It is then easier to breath.....
when everywhere is painted green including the fruits
the luxury of space for pandan to grow wild.
bamboo with space to grow and breath
composting is nothing new
cotton, pure and fluffy.
