Intuition. Detours. And a flower with a life of its own.
In keeping with the Earth Day theme this week, I share a story about nature…and nurture…and trust.
One holiday season some years ago, a friend gave me a boxed amaryllis. Remembering how much I like them gracing my window ledge, I looked forward to seeing this one bloom.
I got home and opened the box only to find a large bulb blinking back at me. Without the right size pot and good soil, this baby would have to wait until I got to the garden store. Knowing bulbs keep in the dark, I carefully placed it back on top of the packing straw, closed the box and set it in a dark corner, reminding myself to remember to buy the pot and soil. And promptly forgot. Holidays over, I became submerged with the details of living, clients and errands, music and yoga, driving here and there and everywhere, except to the garden store.
