Life does not accommodate you;

it shatters you. 

Every seed destroys its container,

or else there would be no fruition.

(I took this photo a couple of years ago when, in the midst of a New Delhi street riotous with animal, human, and vehicular traffic, I saw a wooden cart, and on it, the most exquisite pyramid of pomegranantes, its crowning fruit bursting open for all the world to taste.)

  1. Dear Stephanie,
    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog.
    I have loved everything I’ve read here. Such honesty, clarity and beauty are a gift.
    I received the quote in this posting recently from http://www.Gratefulness.org, and have been meaning to write about it, too. Thank you for the reminder of a deep truth.
    Blessings to you.

  2. So, so beautiful. And the photo goes perfectly with the quote.
