I recently attended a reflection session with some like-minded people. The focus of the session was on the beginning of another year and paying attention to the gaps and openings that are drawing us in to set roots and generate new life in 2022. It was very timely for me as I’m at a place where I am transitioning to a new stage in my life’s journey.
We explored a poem by Linda Buckmaster called ‘Flowering’.
‘Pick a crevice
A homey gap
Between the stones
And make it
This is all we have
In this life, all we own:
A gap between stones
For tiny tender roots.’
For me, I am exploring and discovering what those tiny tender roots look like and how I can nourish them to help them grow and create a strong foundation to support my new journey.
What tiny tender roots will you lay down in 2022?
