We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.Martin Luther King, Jr.
The banana is almost to the top of the window. I don't know if it will make it before the freezing sets in and it starts to die back for the winter.
Fall is difficult for me. Viscerally, I feel the dying. Yes, I know that is the natural order and it is required for rebirth. Just because it is the way of the universe, doesn't mean that I...we shouldn't have feelings. I do.
So I will be sad to see my beautiful banana plant die back this year. Given that I have managed to keep the plant alive through two winters now, I will hold the hope that this winter will be no different.
Infinite hope...in life.
