Though life pours down from the stars, and it spurts up from the ground. A blade of grass, bud of flower, or baby beginning to crawl, are all miracles of unending awe that cycles through fascinating stages of life to death. Each phase of life is miraculous and multi-faced beyond our full explanation. We should treasure our ever-changing earth in all its complexity.
However, what we must remember are the very simple, seemingly gross ingredients that spring forth such a varietal mix of life.
A new beginning is but the beginning of an end. Once something expires, it gets reabsorbed into the dirt giving back the life it had borrowed, enriching the earth from whence it came. Once we understand that one day our dynamic, lively bodies will become the soil calling for the warmth of the sun, we can appreciate even the most repelent of substances.
