The direction of their tilt, the light and shade reveal what these plants are reaching for in this second floor window facing east. Wait, I’m thinking Step 11.

      Its that rising Sun they are reaching for and if I water them, keeping them turned to the same near precise direction, the little cilantro will grow strong.

It’s strange, I have destroyed some of my favorite plants by not keeping the sensitive leaves pointed in the same direction they were accustomed to, turning them by mistake, for their daily sun rays. An old hippie gardener in Nashville gave me that important tip. Take good care of my dear friend Paul. He encourages me often on my journey.
