A thought for the new year:

“The foxglove tells us that our life is a whole, consisting of youth and age, of flowering moments and dying moments, of buds and seeds, of uses and needs. It is not one big blossom, but a whole plant. Its wealth resides in its wholeness and the relationships of all its parts to the whole. The dust gathers to make foxgloves, you and me. We too can shape the dust. What shape will that be…?” John Ruskin

What shape will you be?
