Watering the garden I noticed this small hornbeam sapling having sprung back to life… last year it turned leafless pretty early in autumn and I thought it was gone. And now I see the green shoots…

I’d like to think that our human spirit has the same regenerative quality…some may call it defiance. That is how we bounce back, stand up after falling down, fight back after being beaten down by circumstances…and smile again after a dark day.

And compared to this sapling – we surely have a better chance at shaping our future, or?

It shouldn’t be much for us to match the defiance of this fragile sapling now, should it? (April 2018).
