Dear Friends, Human Be-ings all,
Today I want you to think about Bees, about how they take the pollen, something very ordinary in their lives, then mix it with their blood, sweat, and tears, (Okay, their saliva), sit with it for a while (okay, fanning it for a long time), and slowly, wonderfully, they are able to make ambrosia — food for the gods — out of it.
Sweet, natural (but the result of a long process. . . .) HONEY!!!
Also, something like our lives, eh? We take our ordinary selves, then through blood, sweat and tears, a long time of sitting and reflecting on things, we can make ourselves (with help from whomever can help) something sweet with which to nourish the world.
Write and image about “Bee-ing” this transformation.
