After the morning rain I took a short walk. Along the way I noticed the beads of water hanging on the tips and low points of the small branches of the trees that haven’t yet bloomed with the coming of spring. I understood that those beads of water represent the gathering of all the surrounding moisture into a single, concentrated area for a finite period of time. A gentle breeze, a passing car, a scavenging squirrel or bird, and the drops will naturally fall away. The natural gathering of focused attention for a finite period of time, the one-pointedness of raindrops on the trees.
