Learning from a Radish

Learning from a Radish

20 Jan 2020

All beings grow at their own pace, even if they belong to the same species or family.

It takes compassion, not intelligence, to recognise the different needs and growth pace, and wisdom to see slowness and fastness both have their roles to play.

Just trying to survive. I picked this particular radish bec it looked battered and scarred. It might make a gd salad but given its appearance, it is likely to end up in the trash when new stock arrives. So I bought it the way someone might adopt an ugly dog. Only I am not cultivated enough to commit such a great act of kindness yet. So I start with radish.

While I celebrate the proliferation of leaves on one radish, I am even more grateful to the other for just trying to survive.
