I met up with a colleague this week who was delighted to report he’d just learned of a potential solution to a water shortage in his area. In describing the solution, it became clear that there was not actually a shortage of water, but rather a terrible system of use and distribution, which could be altered and improved to provide for all.
Friends, we are so trained in the language and thinking of scarcity, and indeed some resources are both precious and rare.
But sometimes – often – we see shortage where there is plenty.
What might be possible if we recognized when there is plenty of time, plenty of ingredients, plenty of wherewithal?
What if there is also plenty of smartness, plenty of beauty, plenty of kindness, plenty of love?
What if we ourselves are plenty, too?
