There are times when we need to speak up, be bold, suggest new approaches and plant differently. It’s not always appreciated, welcomed or accepted. Oh well. When the boat rocking becomes stabilized we often find that what has taken root grows into something even more interesting, useful and beautiful….to combine land and sea metaphors.
Plant tall plants in front of shorter ones. Use orange and pink flowers together. Season your tofu with pesto and use Asian spices on your pasta. Listen to a radio station you’ve never spent time with before. Make new connections in your community. Be willing to suggest improvements…and work toward their implementation.
Let’s all stay willing to shake things up.
