This morning I saw resilience here
I spent the night up north, opening up the futon sofa and sleeping in front of a fire with my favourite bug. When we woke it was -3 Celsius. I needed to see the beauty that gritted its teeth and flowered "anyway" in spite of the temperature's grab to cut it down. I need to take inspiration from these small, simple flowers and find my own resilience "anyway". I need to waken that corner of my heart that believes I can flower while external influences grab at it to tamp it out.
Thank you to all who have left comments here the last while. I have not found the words to respond to many but know that I deeply appreciate your presence and kindness.
