An empty mailbox beside an empty field. Ready. Waiting. Or is it
A stuffed mailbox beside a seeded field?
You can’t tell by looking. You have to explore. You have to ask. You have to prepare. You have to reach out.
Fields and mailboxes: both demand participation.
Except when delightful surprises surface. A volunteer flying seed can propagate in an empty field. A letter that you don’t expect can arrive. In both cases, the news can be either a pleasant or an unpleasant surprise.
But that’s the nature of life isn’t it.
However, you can make sure that people have pleasant surprises by mailing a lovely letter… or planting the seed for a beautiful flower or an interesting vegetable at the corner of a field.
Whether you’re the one who gives the gift or the one who receives it, both offer possibilities for Peace. Deepen those possibilities why don’t you? Let’s Peace!
