Bamboo

March 3, 2003

… to pattern your life after the giant bamboo.  The exterior, though smooth and lovely to the touch, is tough and resistant to the sword.  Within, it is soft, pliable, with much empty space for continued growth.  It grows neatly and ordered, never cluttered.  Alone, it rise tall and straight, always upward to the sky.  There, it spreads its beauty to the sun.  It leans on nothing.  It makes its own way, perhaps near others, part of others, but very much dependent upon its own strength and force.  So pattern your life.
