The answers are not easy, they are born from the rock hard soil of thought, effort of will, against all odds.  We have so much struggle and sometimes the sun breaks through giving us a peak of all that is new and beautiful amongst all that is stark and bare.  Then one day, quite unexpectedly we see the small shoot of growth, awarding us for all our efforts.  May we never loose sight of the new which comes forth from the hard work of today.
