Rising up

It's been some time since my last post. Stuff comes up and passes. At one time I thought to write about letting things go and not clinging; just 'put it down'. But the impetus to blog passed too!

At the end of last month Dave C and I had an impromptu trip to NY in the USA. Skyscrapers certainly show the capability of man's ego - both good and not so good. The view from 'The Top of The Rock' is sublime. And for me the little bit of 'nature' in the form of a tree in this photo is a welcome bit of the wider world in a very man made place. Note too the sign: 'No Standing Anytime'; yep, we all keep moving. Moving right through the stillness.

This morning I see news from my friend RM Mugo:

working with Rev Alicia, RM Mugo is laying the foundation / sowing the seeds of a great new venture. I have every confidence that small, starting shoots will grow. Things come and go but they also sustain.

from Wiktionary;


sustain (third-person singular simple present sustainspresent participle sustainingsimple past and past participle sustained)
  1. (transitive) To maintain (something), or keep it in existence.
  2. (transitive) To provide for or nourish (something).
  3. (transitive) To encourage (something).
  4. (transitive) To experience or suffer (an injury, etc.).
  5. (transitive) To confirmprove, or corroborate (something).

A blessing on this new venture.
