Saturday Serenity: The Metaphor of Magical Orchids

What a wonderful pop of color this orchid has added to the dreariness of the winter months! I have had this orchid for about nine years, and it never ceases to surprise me.

Just when I think it won’t have another bloom, three arrive with another one to shortly join its colorful companions.

I have often heard that orchids are extremely difficult to grow; for some reason, this hasn’t been the case with this particular beauty. I find it interesting that whatever is happening at its roots certainly seems like magic. Lying dormant to one day manifest into this beautiful and intricate flower.

Rather like a metaphor for ideas and inspiration. At our very core (our “roots” if you will) I believe we have the capacity to produce all kinds of amazing things.

Ah, the serenity of such magnificence. Did you think I was referring to the orchid? I was also referring to YOU!
