Young Light

Around here, the New Year was ushered in with exuberance.  I don't recall so much horn-blowing, shouting and firecrackers in other years.

I was actually wide-awake and now this morning feel the delicacy of this new year, the fragility.  I've been reading about the root structure of the lotus, the stem, and what it takes to bring those petals to the surface.   My desire is that the roots and stem of the past are strong enough to carry this year with lightness, beauty, and subtlety.   

I enjoy the writing and work of Oliver Sacks.

Here is his inspirational comment on neuroplasticity and what is possible for each of us.   We can keep learning and performing new "tricks".  We must!
