I used to keep bees. Not only did I learn much about them, but I also learned from them. Also check out my post, Animal Spirits: The Bee – https://peacockseyes.com/2013/06/26/animal-spirits-the-bee/
People have a hard time letting go of their suffering.
Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar. ~Thich Nhat Hanh
If only my words could fully express the luscious taste, smell, texture, experience of fresh, pure honey. Used as an medicine by ancient Egyptians. Used as a fragrant sweetener and immunizer to me and countless others. Breathing in, watching the honey drizzle slowly down upon a piece of bread.
