growth


Random quote of the day:

“As a seed buried in earth can’t imagine itself as an orchid or hyacinth, neither can a heart packed with hurt or a mind filmed over with despair imagine itself loved or at peace. The courage of the seed is that, once cracking, it cracks all the way. To move through the dark into blossom is the work of the soul.

—Mark Nepo, Parabola, Winter 2012/2013

in the secret vaults of heaven.
