I am one of the crowd on this Monday; I’m with the in-crowd, the working crowd, the humanity crowd. And here in this Monday moment, I compose myself and take a deep breath; better to appreciate my view of the week.
I shall bend towards duty and discipline, I shall keep my eye on the sunset and the birds that soar in the sky. I shall stand in solidarity with my peers. I shall keep company with good people and I will both give and receive strength from their proximity and their example. I will work to cross borders and boundaries, especially the ones that are strongest in my mind, the small ones that sometimes keep me away from my goals. I shall be brave.
My wild mustard dreamers and I will pick a course for the week. Perhaps we will stay true to it, perhaps not. But somehow I think it will all end up fine in the end. I have the wind, the sun, the dirt between my toes, and my view of the week to hold in my heart. Together my mustard dancers and I will be as a flock and we shall rise up and take flight in the sky of dreams, fulfillment and potential. I shall be a friend.
Let nothing stop us, especially ourselves. I shall truly be.
We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be. Please come back again for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like. Even better, look down at the world that teems with life and meaning. It is right at your feet!
