Act of Courage

Some days it is a simple as raising one's head up and out of the ground..extending it long and tall and very proud. Some days it's as simple and easy as just that.

New air to breathe.

A new sight to be seen.

Lots and lots of potential and possibility.

Confused - I thought. It's early January. The sun is bright. The air is warm. He must have thought it safe to come out of hiding.

But then - perhaps not. Perhaps this was his intention. To be very very brave. To take one small step. To show up no matter what. To come out - even if it isn't the perfect day...even if it isn't yet springtime.

Yes - I concluded - that's what this is. This isn't an act of lost confusion...this is an act of inspiration and utmost courage. Yes.
