In nature, as in our lives, everything changes, sometimes rapidly, sometimes with slow deliberation. I sometimes look back and see events as they unfolded and realize they happened in perfect order, everything with its time and purpose. Now when I feel uncertain or disappointed, I am comforted by this Unknown. Everything changes in unexpected ways. It’s the water moving the pigment, the clouds changing the light, rain nourishing the tree, the progression of a blossom, a movement as elusive as the wind.
