I just planted some paper. Apparently it turns into wildflowers.

I’m a little bit fascinated by the idea of tiny seeds transforming, bursting slowly into bigger, living things. As with many of the important things, I’m afraid to nurture a growing creature takes a special quality that I don’t possess, a quality has nothing to do with GPAs, being financially responsible or well-liked. I fear I’ve spent too much time learning how to organize and control situations, to the point where I’ve forgotten how to be sensitive to and receptive of what’s happening. Maybe sprouting leaves will teach me.
