Timing

Flowers in the garden

If the plum blossom opens too early, it risks being destroyed by wind and frost. If it waits too long there won’t be time for the whole process of pollination and fruiting. Opening up is always a best guess and an act of courage.

What moves you to take the risk of opening up?

Taxes

Most people, it seems, regard taxes as a necessary evil at best, and a form of robbery at worst. But surely there is something to celebrate about the fact that we all band together to buy things that none of us could afford on our own, like roads or libraries.

What are you happy to support with your taxes?

What have you escaped?

Life’s Fire

“Money is in some respects life’s fire: it is a very excellent servant, but a terrible master.” ―P. T. Barnum

Shoes

They say that you can’t know a person until you have walked a mile in their shoes. But really, even then, their shoes probably wouldn’t fit you the way they fit them.

In what areas of your life do you have privileges that others don’t? In what areas do you lack privileges others have?
