This Christmas I received the gift of a vase.
Three of them.
Each has a full body and a very narrow opening.
Each was a gift from a child.
My post could end right there.
It is enough.
…Except that after the day I’ve had, these vases are speaking to me:
about my fretting and my overextending:
“Be full inside yourself.
Direct what it is you have to offer.
Let a strong focus give your gifts the space they need.
The way may be narrow, but anchored so, your bloom will express an inner fullness.”
