broken heart

That prickly pear pad on the left has had a hard life – even for a cactus! – with scars and a wound on the top that made it heart-shaped. Yet, still, a translucent new pad sprouted from it this spring. There’s a lesson there for us, for those days when we’re feeling beat up and damaged and scarred.
