Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

#38 - "Grace Notes from a Bohemian in Wanderlust." Justyna's Garden in Irving Park.

("Grace Notes from a Bohemian in Wanderlust" is a series of posts about my 3.5 week May vacation in Seattle, Chicago, Milwaukee, Lake Tomawk, WI and Miami. They are in no particular order.)

Justyna’s my best friend from high school. I thoroughly enjoy the time we spend together for many reasons – common values and politics, intelligent conversation, appreciation for history and our family’s roots, music tastes, etc. We can sit and look at each other for an hour and not say a word. She has a beautiful garden on her property in Irving Park – the Victorian she lives in was refurbished from the ground up. Whenever I’m there I feel “at home". And whenever I leave I feel a sense of angst. We did a bit of gardening on this last visit – pruning and mapping out her next gardening project she needs to tackle.

Click on READ MORE! and take a walk through Justyna's garden - and enjoy.
