Letter From the Editor: Showers and Succulents

Letter From the Editor: Showers and Succulents

While I was doing a big cleanup in my front yard last weekend, I realized that my little patch of ground has changed. For all the years I’ve lived there, it’s been very shady with only a few hours of morning sun to keep the hydrangeas and impatiens happy. I never got to plant zinnias or tomatoes – there just wasn’t enough sun. Last year the lots next door to me were razed to make way for new construction. The lush woods that shaded my yard are gone. Then, Hurricane Matthew blew through with destructive force and took some of my trees with him. I was unsettled by both events, even though I tried very hard to look on the bright side. Regardless, change is hard. But, what I realized while I was outside that day is that now I can plant zinnias and tomatoes. There’s enough sun for both – and maybe a basil plant or two as well. It’s the same with life, I believe. Change, while sometimes unsettling, is necessary for growth, and there is always a silver lining if I look hard enough.

And many times change is good! The Sasee headquarters have moved to the Litchfield Exchange, located behind Applewood Pancake House in Litchfield. We are all thrilled about our new digs and hope you’ll stop by and say hello.

From all of us, best wishes for a Happy Easter or Happy Passover!

To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow–this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.
