Each year, after the final frost, I am eager to check on our apple trees. From leaf to bud to flower to fruit, the progression of our three trees is framed by the three seasons to come, ending in a long-awaited harvest of Fuji, Golden Delicious, and Gala apples. But they can’t do it alone. These species bloom around the same time, allowing for cross-pollination. They need each other to bear fruit. It’s inspiring to think about the ways in which the elements of our lives cross-pollinate ~ people, experiences, ideas ~ and how they influence each other. We might discover elements that support us, and we can release those that do not. It’s an opportunity to play with that balance, and to discern, through trial and error, what nourishes us, both for the short term and for the long term, and puts us on a path to success. What connections encourage you to thrive?
