A kiss from nature
Watching bumblebees can be a soothing activity. The flower opens itself to welcome the bee's dance in its petals, and just by being itself, the bee gives a gift to the flower by pollinating it. The bee does not attack the flower for its pollen, nor does the flower hide from the bee's presence. They care for one another in an intimate way. We can honour one another by giving what we can and by taking only what we need. Perhaps the gift is advice, a compliment, a hug. Perhaps we take advice, a compliment, a hug. Nature displays this balance so well. Let us learn from her.
