"And finally the day will come when the risk it takes to remain tight in the bud will be more painful than the risk it takes to blossom."
A quick note on flowers and YALA Peace:
flowers come up in our workshops and our creative work often.
They are symbols, for peace and for love, for spring and for renewal.
We give them as gifts, we express love through them.
When we talk about our growth, we say, "we bloom, we blossom."
And we ARE blooming and blossoming -
the YALA Peace stars have been encouraged all year to open their minds and hearts and honor their creative growth, and with that nurturing push, they are now encouraging that freedom and expansion to the eager little children who come, more and more of them every week, to drink in the fresh water and sunshine of free expression that we shower on them.
We are all thirsty for it.
And now the YALA Peace flowers are wildly overgrowing their boxed gardens, and taking risk after risk to bloom all over the place.
Keep your eyes out for these wildflowers, beautiful beyond belief.
