however large the differences in our lifestyles that keep us firmly apart,
is a truly sharp creature when assesing my actions.
He once said - while in the midst of our separation - that this is just who I am;
I decide to direct effort into some project
and I move heaven and earth to make it happen.
I learn whatever there is to be learnt,
make whatever needs to be made,
create time for the task and apply myself with crazy dilligence not to let anything go unnoticed.
I make it my pet project...
"...just like you made our relationship your pet project..."
...and if the project does not comply to my standard I dismantle it just as diligently.
"...until no stone on stone remain."
Wouldn't he just throw a fit right now if he knew that some pet projects do get revisited.
I already dabbled some with potted herbs
but that was a half-hearted endeavor
and this time I plunged into realization with my full might.
Lo and behold:

My space is limited and I limited the choice of herbs on ones that I would truly use for cooking so here are the fruits of about four weeks of efforts; few basils, rosemary, mint, sage, leafy parsley and some newly acquired hot peppers in the background.
Zvjezdica is pleased and so am I.
Only chives missing from the picture but are planned and there will be some soon.
Basils were already harvested (twice)...

... and pesto was made:

There's something intoxicatingly wonderful in seeing your effort turn into results.
