Asserting growth by Juliet Batten | 25, Sep, 2010 | Uncategorized | 4 comments Spring growth erupts out of clenched fists. No matter how much we contract, dig our heels in, shut out the fierce interventions of nature, growth is programmed. Despite earthquakes and storms, new leaves find their way through, reaching to the sky. 4 Comments Joan on 25/09/2010 at 21:25 Wonderful photo. How mysterious if life. Reply Joan on 25/09/2010 at 23:40 What a funny little message I left. If life what.. you may well ask. That tree does look like a fist doesn’t it. A lovely metaphor for us and for our season that seems to be clinging more to what was. Reply Marilyn on 26/09/2010 at 08:22 Thought provoking words and the photo matches so well. It is that that in spite of set backs there is growth. Reply janellis on 11/10/2010 at 00:38 thank you for this reminder that growth is programmed and erupts – i choose to allow growth – to come without clenched fists i allow it to occur – any which way – i trust the programmed process of growth- through the seasons – i welcome growth and i support my own growth – arms outstreched no matter how awkward GROWTH COME Come Growth Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
