Pebbles Beneath a Stream

November 19, 2015

I have wondered what life would be like if everything went as I planned or wanted. Would I be happier than I am today?

To shiny pebble at the bottom of a stream, a butterfly flying free seems to be capricious as it carries pollen amongst the flowers: both are equally spiritual formations to my view. Between you and myself, I would have thought of myself as the pebble. Imagine my surprise to be called capricious.

I recently came across a quote by Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto (1843-1923) that made me pause… and reflect.


“Give me a fruitful error any time, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections,” by Pareto, design by Meredith Eliassen, 2015.
