How often do we really look at our world? How often do we see everything? Part of the mandate of Today’s Perfect Moment is to find those things that we may overlook. I have stood at this bus stop for more days than I would care to count and I had never seen this until today. I have stood inside and out. I have stood to the left and to the right. I have walked around the stop in order to boost my step count. I have paced bath and forth either out of frustration at a late bus or in another bid to boost my step count. Yet, today was the first day I saw this.
Either before they constructed the waiting area and the shelter or shortly after that, a tree began to grow. It burst through a seam, now probably a wide crack, and stretched for the sky. This one little seed defeated the odds and grew in exactly the place it was discouraged from growing.
I think there is a lesson in this for all of us.
