The Will to Live
While doing the dishes today, I found a lentil which had sprouted in the dish drainer. Such will to live! Such ignoring of the odds and the illogical circumstances in which to take a shot at life! Who was I to deny assistance after this one lone lentil made such a valiant effort?
I planted it – in a pot in which I had two days previously planted a handful of lavender seeds. Welcome to the neighborhood, lentil. Let’s see what you’ve got!
