A New Home

Rose bush pruned down near the soil

I closed on a house not too long ago. I’m still moving things in, but one of the first things I did was give my grandmother’s rose bush a new home as well. It is now in the backyard of my new house.

It doesn’t look like much now, but if history tells me anything, the resiliencey of this plant will overcome any obstacle it faces, a symbol of how I want to live my life.

Life Patterns

Life is full of patterns and humans are constantly trying to figure out what it all means and what those patterns will lead. It is what we do to survive.
We all do this everyday and not even know it. We stroll through life surrounded by so many patterns visible and invisible.
I often times wonder why.
