Day 20

'Day 20' by Jina Wallwork

This day reveals a snapshot of the world around me. I can sit amongst the flowers and admire their beauty. As I look back through a string of many days, I know that I have seen those flowers open up. I have seen the world change around me but it has happened so gradually I can only see this in hindsight. It is not only nature that has changed. The world has grown in culture and knowledge. Each day must have contained amazing people, each delivering their gift to the world. I am in awe of everything our species has achieved. We have made mistakes, perhaps they are merely aspects of our journey. Without failure there can be no success. They are both part of the same process. As human beings I can see all our shared growth within the world around us. It is magnificent and this is only what I can see, on this single day. It is a snapshot of all that we are capable of achieving. I am thankful to be a part of such an amazing species.
