From and To. Here and Now

“Let a hundred flowers bloom, let a hundred schools of thought contend.” – Mao Zedong

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” – Epicurus

Anchored in their own roots, flourishing with light and water, flowers breaks ground in due time and on time. Through old leaves, surrounded by weeds, aiming for the sky, completing their own journey.

Move me from striving to thriving;
From seeking to finding;
From want to gratitude;
From noise to quiet;
From distraction to attention;
From critic to cheerleader;
From pessimism to optimism
From hurry to saunter;
From spotlight to mirror;
From calculation to celebration;
From more to what already is;
From clinging to letting go;
From worry to ease;
From the past to the present;
From floundering to hope;
From counting to love, unconditionally;
From shadow to light;
From bud to bloom;
From no where to go but here and now in this moment, senses reawakened, a shift;
Move me, nothing else.

“It’s not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities.” – Kristin Armstrong
