No Hesitation (In Praise of Weeds)

Not that weed. 🙂

A friend once told me not to bring this orchid home because “it’s a weed among orchids.”

I decided to take it home anyway because I’ve tried other varieties and none of them survived. This fellow, for all its humble pedigree, kept blooming. I think it’s because it doesn’t listen to what others say.

If plants overthink their reason for being, I guess many of them won’t be around.

Just think of the cactus growing in the desert.

The Sun doesn’t judge who gets its light.

The jasmine keeps on spreading its tiny flowers and scent.

Growth is life and life is growth.

We be like plants and hesitate less.

Now, for that other kind of weed… 🙂
