A friend here in Ojai is creating a center for sharing wisdom through guest presenters, classes and events where people can flourish.  She has just named the center Flourish. I love that name. I remembered something I wrote years ago that ended with the word flourish.  And here it is.

Patience, Patience, Patience

I am in that place where blossoms grow into expressions of delicate refined beauty,

Where infinitesimal small steps are to be revered and tenderly nurtured into womanhood,

Where even the slightest step must be spirit directed, or the blossom cannot reach the height of its glory.

Be ever so patient with me. I want to flourish.
