(written December, 2011)
when i was outside the other night, something suddenly fell on the top of my head and landed at my feet. upon further investigation, i realized that it was a large nut seed that resembled an acorn. i looked above to see which tree had bestowed this, probably one of its last seeds from the autumn season. There was no tree in sight.
my mind immediately went to the age old chicken little story of how the sky was falling. indeed it seems as if in the past month or so things have fallen apart, and it has felt as though my entire world is ending.
yet i eventually came to the conclusion that although things are falling, the seed itself represents a rebirth and new growth, that i must be willing to accept, as once these new ideas and experiences take root, they can with tim grow into even more amazing and beautiful things.
