flexibilty


(snow falling on bamboo)

To me, the ending felt so correct and so appropriate that it seemed to bend over backward to kiss the beginning.

With only 1/2 inch of snow on Sunday, the bamboo in front of the house leaned to the ground. An hour later after the snow melted, once again the bamboo stood taller than the eaves of the second story.

Oh, to be so flexible...to be able in the end to bend over backward and kiss the beginning.

Gorgeous quote. Gorgeous sentiments.

Awesome! (Said as I look out the window to the nearly twelve inches of snow I have now. My trees are bending, bending, bending...).

Thanks for the reminder that bending can ultimately result in standing tall.

I'm with Deb. Thanks for the reminder. I've certainly been doing my share of bending in the last week! Time to straighten up.
