  • It seems that if you love one thing, you'll love something else, as well.

    If you love one creature, you'll start to love others, too.

    I mean, if you love the bee you'll probably start to love the flower and the tiny, tiny pollen and then maybe you'll begin loving the wasp and the fly and the other insects that do work like your beloved bee.

    Well, it happens for me like that.

    If you love one child, it's easy to love another one. And to love people who love these children and to love what these children say and make.

    And along with all this love, maybe you see the work that needs to be done to clear the way for more love, to make dry riverbeds that will flow again or a path that lets someone run to freedom.

    In this way, love starts to link up the world and shows us our work for this life. We can follow the connections love makes to new places and new loves.

    I think this might be true.
