|Author:||Clarissa Pinkola Estes|
What makes talent bloom? Ask what makes a tree blossom. They are the same. It is not unfathomable. It only takes concentration. Concentration of energies is what makes a tree flower. Not bigger, not faster, not taking up more space. Rather . less space. Density . Pressure in hard places. Often, in the dark. Relentlessly. Freely. For as long as it takes. Hold faith, a gestation can go long and for good reason, and nothing much shows above ground . But then, one day . -Clarissa Pinkola Est?s, PhD Return once again to the fireside with Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Est's for the next presentation of her masterwork on the Dangerous Old Woman.
