change one thing

I read somewhere once, "if you want things change, go outside and move a rock". It's true. At least I believe it's true. If you change one thing, you change everything. It's the Butterfly Effect, where the ripple of a wing affects everything around it, and on, and on, and on...

I did not see these beads coming. All I did was move to a lake, and set up a tent. I changed something, and in the process, everything changed. I've never made anything like these before, and I didn't plan to make them when I sat down at the torch the other day. All I knew was it was time to get back to work, and so I sat down to play. I'm not responsible for the results. All I need to do is show up.

There's a lot of comfort in letting go of control. The little changes require our participation. We're the ones with the hands. After we do our rock-kicking ceremonies, all we have to do is get out of the way and see what surfaces. If it can happen with beads, just imagine...
