One thing 2020 has taught me is to appreciate the little things. The way light shines through green leaves, coffee with milk chocolate, plastic free coconut shampoo, a new episode from the Mandalorian (not a little thing) and squirrels frolicking in the park. I love to watch them run around with their sine wave form, hiding nuts, forgetting where they put them, then clambering onto a tree in the shape of a tiny Persian rug. The best part has to be when they jump from tiny branch to tiny branch as if they had life insurance. And then they sit, comfortably on some twig, waiting for you to pass by so they may continue their whimsical routine.
Shadows grow deep in a doubtful mind
Its light sparks quietly and is hard to find
But when you turn to look deeper, into your heart
Flames grow and hurl your shadows apart
A hollow tree is beautiful when covered in snow
So will your mind be when rooted bellow.
