“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.” Charles Dickens
The quote I read this week reminds me of the humble Bee, who, all together are little pollinators of our world. Our winter garden is in bloom with yellow wattle flowers and pink Camelia’s, with bees buzzing all around them. As I watch from my window, I see them ever so gently touching each flower and moving on, feeding on the nectar and pollen, for their own well-being and also to take-home food for the young plus ingredients to make honey.
On reflection, it seems they don't destroy, they use what they need, add to the well-being of the flora, then very quietly and gently make honey which adds richness to their life and mankind's life.
Well this begs the question, why can’t we humans be the same? Yes, we can use what we need for our own well-being, but each time adding to the well-being of those who produce, while creating a more caring, equal world. #Fairtrade
