Stagnant Ponds

Stagnant:  not growing or changing;  not circulating or flowing.  When something or someone stops growing they begin to die.

Minds and hearts are like ponds.  If they are open, growing, and circulating with new information and experiences, they thrive and nurture other life.  But if they are closed off to new thoughts, new experiences, and new relationships, they decay, and become stagnant, thereby sustaining no life.  If we are rigid and fearful of change and new possibilities we die to love, compassion, empathy, and truth.  NDR ’14

About doctoraquarius

As long as I can remember I have written - poems, observations, stories. Then graduate school, marriage, raising a family, and work occupied my life 100% of the time, and my writing for pleasure took a back seat. I'm back. Retirement from my professional life as a school psychologist, grown children, and an empty nest have freed me to follow my passion. My wonderful husband of nearly 40 years encourages me and my God sustains me.
