The Weather Factor

Not a drop of rain had fallen on the greater Washington area in more than two months when this video was produced. Gardens everywhere were drying up. Plants were dying out. Gardening Editor Adrian Higgins and I decided to help out by showing people how to spruce up a garden during the stifling drought.

As the final touches to the video were being applied, rumors of a tropical storm heading our way began circulating. Needless to say, the video never saw the light of day. This one's for the archives!

I enjoyed the videos and will look forward to seeing more of them. I hope that the Post can provide some resources for the people who are unemployed to develop some way to support themselves and return to a place in life where they can enjoy simply being alive.

Does the Post dictate what the videos must contain? Is the goal of the videos to tell the real story of life?

If we see and hear one another's stories we may be able to find the common thread of humanity in all of us that enables us to create a society that helps its members to live healthy and happy lives.
