Parsley is good for people who are constantly
dissatisfied with how things really are and "wish it
was all different ... then I could be happy ..."
Good against time displacements of living in the
past or future rather than the now. Not just
surviving, but thriving, regardless of what life
throws at you.
There once was a terrible war of destruction, which left
everything in absolute ruin - not a house was left
intact, not a road you could even tell where it might
have been for all the rubble strewn about, not a tree
left standing. No-one lived there any longer, so it was
with amazement that a soldier on patrol saw a small girl
child playing with a piece of brightly coloured fabric
amidst the ruins. She looked well fed, well cared for
and very happy. He called to her and she skipped over
happily, said that she lived with her mother and sisters
just over there.
The soldier followed the little girl through
the ruins to some stairs, and down the stairs, and into
a cellar where many candles were burning, and a fine
fire in the hearth; there was food boiling in a pot
which smelled delicious and carpets had been put on the
stone floor. There was the mother of the family who had
organised it all, and the sisters looking well content.
The soldier was amazed; he was invited to share the
dinner freely and in time, became a great help to this
family of survivors.
