It’s important to take a look around every once in a while.
Glimpse down a sidewalk and you will find an overwhelming abundance of life tucked away in every corner.
Now stop and look for a bit longer; let the distraction of your own inner life melt away. Do you see it?
The rich inner lives driving each of these people. The stories they leave behind with each and every step. Their joy, sorrow, grief, fear, hope.
Planted here are the seedlings of compassion.
Look even longer and you will see the things we are doing well, and the things we should probably work a bit harder to fix. You will see that each of us is a tree growing.
