Years ago, I read a book with a great title: Pears on a Willow Tree.  This phrase came from the main character's grandmother, who called wishing for the impossible "wishing for pears on a willow tree."  She pointed out that if you want pears, you need to plant a pear tree. I was thinking about this today. For whatever reason, humans seem to fixate on the things we can't change, the things beyond our control, out of our hands. Often we go about our days without making the changes within our control, wishing for changes without.  What would happen if we all acted? If we moved to make differences, to affect change in our lives for the better? From the mundane to the magnificent, we each have the potential to alter our reality and improve our lives, our world... if only we plant pear trees.
