What makes the desert beautiful is that it hides, somewhere, a well.

    – Antoine de Saint Exupéry

I was lucky to head to the desert recently, where, much to everyone’s surprise, it was raining. A lot.

The visitors were uniformly grumpy, while the local folks were uniformly giddy. Desert-dwellers could not wait to see flowers and foliage emerge from the normally dry and dusty landscape.  Sure enough, within a single day of the sun’s return, new leaves were unfurling, new blades of grass were sprouting, and new flower buds were forming.

Seeing those plumped-up cacti was a vivid reminder that whatever we have in abundance, we need a little bit of its complement, too. Togetherness and solitude. Intellect and emotion. Kale and chocolate. You get the idea.

Dear Honeybees, in the beautiful deserts of your lives, I wish you a little water, to inspire emergence. And for those times when the rain does not come, I wish you a secret well — one that never runs dry.
