Seeking

possibilities, 2010

Can a plant grow too many roots?
What if I don't anchor these roots into soil?
Will they spiral out of control?
Am I really seeking the answer to another question?

  1. What a wonderful photo! With everything we create and nurture, there's an element of suspense, of the unknown. I often wonder about my own roots, if they will hold me firm or if I should let myself drift with the current.

  2. The idea of some roots being planted in soil while others float free might just be the perfect combination.

  5. Yes they will. Get them into the ground, girl. A healthy plant needs to be well grounded...as do people.

  6. Sometimes roots grow so strong that they lift up the earth around them... and then everything changes. Good or bad? That's a matter of choice.

  7. Love the photo, but your thoughts have planted a little seed in my mind that I think I will be chewing over for a few days.

  8. It depends on the plant. And it depends on the person.

  9. my responses--based on a similar plant in my house:
    1. yes
    2. too much energy goes to the roots
    3. yes, within the context of their container
    4. of course!

  10. Well, if you are seeking an answer to this question, I don't know it. Lots of roots there though. Nice job with your lovely green thumb!

  11. is this perhaps a metaphor for life? I'm not sure... I have a trio of bamboo cuttings with tangled roots... as long as i water them they seem happy... perhaps therein lies the answer... keep things well-watered :)
