The Orchard Odes #11 of 12
November 2016 – Sonoma County, CA
Change is possible, but change is slow. The mind is a stubborn child that resists transformation. Hearts have seasons too, like apple trees and flowers, but they don’t often show it. You can’t create a protected, manicured life but you can prune it and wait patiently for the fruit to grow. Showing up is not enough, you have to show up with your heart and your eyes wide open, you have to stretch your limbs to the sky. We yearn for affirmation and for answers, but it’s the questions that matter. To be or not to be is solved with ‘yes’.
