Cause & Effect


High tide. Ripples farther out to sea turn to waves before they hit the shore. Bees everywhere. Flowers erupt in the breeze, blowing pollen out across the land. Sometimes it takes the jaws of life to open up my heart so I can let in joy, but when the jaws work and I let joy in, I feel lighter, more full of light. I feel awake in the day.
