Saturday 28 December 2013


What a year of ups and downs! We've had our fair share of personal struggles and collective tragedies. More than our fair share of uncertainty, but also moments of great clarity.

Stood at the tail end of this year, I can now see that the overall pattern drawing this seeming mismatch of sometimes tangled threads together has been one of deep rooted and over-arching growth.

I wonder what 2014 will have in store for us?

Sadness gives depth, happiness gives height.
Sadness gives roots, happiness gives branches.
Happiness is like a tree going into the sky.
Sadness is like the roots going into the womb of the earth.
Both are needed and the higher the tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously.
It is always in proportion.
That is balance.
