Opposites are not linear, but circular. At the extreme of one sits its opposite, always in contact with one another in a dance, not isolation. If the opposite of love is fear then the opposite of suffering is inspiration. A garden personifies inspiration. It is creation, beauty, growth where once stood loss, suffering and death while carefully and lovingly tended.  You could not have one without the other.
