damon young on gardening

I am a huge fan of Damon Young, I discovered him when he wrote the ‘Dreams don’t come in installments‘ article a while back. I like his approach to life, and the way he thinks about things. On his blog I recently read this quote from an article he wrote in Men’s Health Magazine:

“…gardens are one of the last, great bastions of the amateur. From computers, to cars, to the sharemarket, our daily life is dominated by experts. This is why they sometimes spend more daytime in our homes that we do. But like sport and cooking, gardens are where we can proudly, clumsily, happily be amateurs – and benefit into the bargain.”

Well said.
