Claus  Mikosch - Señor Gonzalez and the Garden of Life


"We fall so that we can learn to stand up again." Claus Mikosch

Niklas, in his early thirties, has just become redundant and is somewhat uprooted, and so he decides to take time out in Andalusia. Here he meets Señor Gonzalez, an old gardener who has been growing vegetables naturally for decades – "always with nature as a friend and assistant".

To begin with, Niklas only visits the old man now and again and then ends up by spending several hours each day helping him in the garden. In the process, Niklas not only learns a lot about growing leeks and tomatoes but more particularly about imperturbability, mindfulness and frugality. Señor Gonzalez, his knowledge and his wisdom open Niklas's eyes and help him give his life new meaning.

For readers of Mitch Albom's Tuesdays with Morrie.
