I now know what an amaryllis stalk looks like after being mowed down by a hawk in pursuit of a finch: bent hard but still holding on tight. Stretched to its limit but not broken. There was no way to straighten it up and have it remain connected so I just let it be.

Within two hours after I first saw it this morning the two buds at the top of the stalk had moved and were no longer prostrate, and by the time the sun set they were pointed straight up. The light came from thataway now and they could not be stopped from reaching for it.

All living things are designed to heal. If there’s any way at all, the Light of us all will do it. If we allow. Lovely reminder as I head off to bed. Love.

That amaryllis was as determined as the lining of your bag, your iPhone and key fob were yesterday! 🙂
