It's about the fact that I feel a renewed sense of hope welling up in me. There is no concrete reason; I just feel more hopeful than I have in the past couple of months, about several things. This year has gotten off to a very rough start, but I sense that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. New life is springing up in some dreams and goals that I have, and it is encouraging.
Speaking of new life, there is this plant.
I have a bad track record with plants. I manage to unwittingly kill them despite my best efforts to nourish them. I even manage to kill plants that thrive on neglect. It really is a sad state of affairs.
So when I received this plant as a gift a couple of weeks ago, I looked at it with a sense of melancholy. It's such a pretty plant. It's a real shame that it won't survive long in my care. Those were the thoughts that crossed my mind.
And yet, here it is, still alive. Pretty, even. There is hope yet.
