As I walk in my neighborhood, I pass this small pine tree growing out of a rock . It captures my imagination every time. The impractical and yet very real joining of these two parts of creation let me see that sometimes the strange and impossible is not only real but can be life-giving.
As I look ahead to all that 2016 will be ~
Some days I will be the rock; immobile, holding fast the things that grow.
Other days I will be the tree; myself seemingly stuck but still growing.
Many days I will find myself feeling the unseen energy moving within and between both elements of rock and tree.
And then somehow I will also be the whole tableau,
always connected to the web of creation,
waiting and working and doing the part that is mine to do.
Happy new year.
