The Lowly Gardener – Humble Like the Dust

To me, a gardener as a profession is ranked in society among those activities belonging to the service industry. They cater to individuals or businesses and lack more advanced education or credentials. They are the house cleaners, the maid, and the janitor.

They are not revered in society as are other professions who are in positions of power, control, influence or fame.  Unfortunately, we label ourselves and others by what they do rather than who they are. Our identities are wrapped up in our work and people judge us initially by what we do for a living. Until we get to know the real person behind the veil of their profession, we are predisposed to classify everyone accordingly.
