It comes without warning. It brings new weather, nutrients, possibilities and opportunities. It upsets the status quo. We can protect against it. Erect shelters and windfalls. Such precautions might change our experience, but when we emerge from our shelters we will not recognise the landscape we left behind.
We can either embrace or protest, but we cannot stop. It seems like an awful waste of energy to try to stop the wind. We could catch it, and sail with it to a new destination. We could harness it, use the additional energy to shape the future instead of just allowing it to happen.
For the best opportunity to embrace our future with intent we should first acknowledge that the winds of change are upon us. Then, choose to harness it.
