Just how will you grow?

After the first cell splits
by January Handl

After the first cell splits,
It never ends,
Not for a millisecond
Each motion
Each stillness
Each pain
Each rapture
Each teardrop’s release
Each laugh’s song
Acute awareness
During drowsy rest
Or dervish dance’s devotions
We are always on our way

We are always on our way

      We are always on our way

Growing toward home.


Growth – Activities that enhance quality of life, develop talents,
and increase the potential for success and happiness

We are always growing. Tamara finds a bit of evidence among the grey of New York winters. January reminds us that we are always on our way…

My question to you is which way? Is your growing deliberate or happenstance? With every breath we have a choice. This week I invite you to choose the type of growth that enhances. What could you learn? What would bring more joy? How could you expand your capabilities?

Welcome to Growth week!  Just how will you grow?


Tamara and January are here each Monday to help set the mood for the week!
