Different Stages…One Plant

Looking out into the garden at this banana tree I saw leaves reflecting growth, decay and death.

We can learn so much from nature.

There is beauty in all stages – all stages necessary.

Doing Sunday Write

Haven’t been in this space for a while! Writing today, and oh – what joy!

Sunday groove…red wine…words flowing…BLISS!

Melba Moore, The Other Side of the Rainbow, playing in the background…

Now someone will try to bring you down
They’ll say dreams are for those who sleep
Oh, but dreamers possess
Great powers untold
They build worlds others cannot see

Remember if you don’t follow your dreams
You’ll never know
What’s on the other side of the rainbow
You’ll never know
What you will find at the top of the mountain

You’ll never know…where you will be at your journey’s end.

We won’t know yet that’s no reason to not continue walking and doing and making and creating your magic! ❤

I am learning more and more how important it is to trust that you will be provided for. When I was probably ten years old, I was asked to read this famous passage on a show that was celebrating Easter.

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don’t toil, neither do they spin.

Two verses earlier at Matthew 6:26 Jesus told his followers not to worry about food, because even the birds are provided for by God.

This morning I was contemplating what to eat for breakfast and then heard a neighbor by the front gate.

Life is full of surprises that sometimes comes in the form of sada roti and roast pumpkin.

I am truly grateful.
