A wonderful lesson from nature.

If, when cleaning a shed, you find sprouted daffodil bulbs, you’ll feel compelled to help them.

Because they’ve formed shoots from their limited internal resources, with no water or soil or sun, but merely the frail hope of life, they’ll impress you tremendously.

You’ll plant them at once and marvel that such a miracle could quietly occur in your own back yard.

As you do, you may remember the old John Burroughs saying:

Leap and the net will appear.

This is jolly good advice.
