A leap of faith

Last year, the mint growing in the pot to the right flourished beautifully, with lovely sprigs that turned into airy streamers, draping over the rail, sending shoots willy-nilly.  Somehow, one of them landed in the pot of Thai basil and was unnoticed as it took root.  It wintered undetected until the spring sunshine began to work its magic. 

I am easily intrigued with the symbolic in life.  Like this shoot of mint, it is fascinating how nature and the metaphysical realm can instruct us if we are observant.  Sometimes, the best ideas come to fruition long after the seed was planted, and then one day, there it was, bearing fruit.

When we can't see change, movement, transference, HE is still at work, and in due time, we will see the change. Its the can't see part that bothers me - need a leap of faith.

You all are getting pretty deep. What I thought was, that mint will take over everything if given half a chance.

I so agree with you LindaRe. Every time I cannot see the change, and feel lost, there comes the leap of faith and the reminder, Oh, yeah, I remember now.

And so true, Kristin. I learned after the first time I planted mint to always contain it to a pot!!!
