"Poetry and cooking are not dissimilar. In poetry you're trying to convey sense of a thing or an emotion, or some experience, and I think when you cook it's a similar aesthetic althrough translated. You're not using words, you're using ingredients and trying to build a complete thought of some sort." [9:00]

Learn more about Margaret's inspiring story and hear how plants taught her to let go and why there's no such thing as "enough". This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.

"With things that you treasure, whether it's a person, a thing or plant, somethings you can hold it a little too close and and suffocate it. Plants taught me a good lesson about too close, too tight behavior."

"I had the illusion for many years that the concept of "enough" was a tangible thing."
