Tiny, Magical Reflection


"We ourselves feel that what we are doing
is just a drop in the ocean.
But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop."
Mother Theresa


In moments when I feel less than,
weak,
insignificant or
unable...
the "macro" world helps me to shift my perspective.
Just look at the detail of those tree branches
captured in the tiny raindrop.
A wonderful reminder of the magic
and beauty
and possibility
that lives in each detail.
That lives in me.
And in each and every one of us.
