Outside my classroom, it snows pollen. I watch as furry puffs of seeds, buds, and dreaded pollen mingle and dance in the April wind.
It’s warm and blustery. As I watch, I realize that this wind disseminates all the seeds. It enables what couldn’t otherwise happen. The design of it all makes me wonder. Wind is lovely! Wind stirs up the seeds and sends them where they might take root.
What Great Design. To have the warmer air come and generate wind just as the seeds need it!
I also love watching the chaos of it. Sometimes, before our great plans take root, they must ride and swirl about till sent to the right landscape. It’s wild and unclear. It’s a dangerous freedom.
We let go and ride the wind.
