Unique and powerful - that's you I'm describing!
Unassuming and unaware of the effect each delicate beauty has as they land on the icy ground;
I could go out and start shoveling and gritting, but the forecast is for the temperature to rise a bit later today so I'm opting out and just letting it be without interfering.
Each delicate, unique flake is completely unaware of its individual and collective power.
In a blizzard we can feel lost and irrelevant, but as Voltaire wrote,
"No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible."
If you disagree with those in power you must stand up, stand apart and speak your truth. You are not governed by the weather, you are not a snowflake, you can decide to stand aside and not be pushed or bullied into following the crowd.
Like millions of others I was left aghast, saddened and bemused when Trump was elected. I was delighted to read that this week Doug Jones, a Democrat won against the Republican Roy Moore in Alabama.. the first time in two decades a Democrat has won there!
Bit by bit the quiet few found their lost voices and remembered their power. One by one they went out to vote and were heard. Never underestimate your individual and collective strength.
Your feelings are here for you to notice. This is your time, what do you love? What is important to you? Are you able to share that? Why keep quiet when you have a voice? Be your wonderful self in glorious technicolour and notice how it feels to share your passion by lifting a lid on your silence.
