You know how people parade snowflakes as the standard of uniqueness? I wonder why we don’t use the example of popcorn instead, each kernel exploding open in its own unique burst of “I AM-ness.” I’d like to advocate for a popcorn metaphor. Fingerprints, snowflakes, popcorn kernels. I know my preference.

Blessings of this ambitious quarter moon to you!
