Do not be afraid, you wild animals, for the pastures in the wilderness are becoming green. The trees are bearing their fruit; the fig tree and the vine yield their riches.
Sometimes when you begin to wonder what life is all about and whether your life's work will ever bear the fruit you were hoping for, a little reminder is helpful: like finding this first fig on the potted fig tree I bought more than a year ago. . . .patience and paying attention is what is needed now. That not-so-little fig has been there for some time waiting to be discovered!
