Being a snowflake and Bruce Lee…


Snowflakes.  Would I ever want to be one?  Probably not… In the list of wishes if I had wishes the term snowflake doesn’t even make in into the top few million.  They are unique… so am I.   They have a limited life and can take many different forms over that life… and, now that I think about it, they are always in one form or another.  Bruce Lee says it’s okay to be water:

Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Now, I don’t know if I’d want to be water… I’d probably lean more towards juice… maybe pineapple.  Hey, there could be pineapple snowflakes, right?
