Trust the Training.

The new year is well under way. During these last many weeks, I've noticed a particularly dead-looking tree outside my bedroom window soften with color, until slowly-suddenly the branches that had clawed at the sky all winter turned to present soft handfuls of flowers instead.  Perhaps you have enjoyed some similar surprises this spring.  Apparently, life revives itself--without our having to plan the project!  What a relief that my expectations have little bearing on the world's turning. What a comfort to consider myself just another flower--poised to unfurl into the fresh and waiting future.
