A Life of Abundance

Evidence of transition surrounded us

Deep within the valley, the land illuminated what we had been feeling all along

The desire to let go, the willingness to cultivate

And then the vulnerability to be still

Because after all, we realized that we are only the compilation of the tiny microscopic moments of surrender

The continual growth and decay, such as the flower turns to fruit and then to seed

For only one day we indulged in the practice of patience

And felt for the first time that of a human who relies on the production of the Earth

In the fertile valley there was truth

There was both joy and pain, wisdom and naivety

Delicately, we hoped to harvest even the slightest bit of what we have been offered

And among the apple and walnut trees, we discovered a life of abundance
