When Hurricane Opal arrived, Pensacola took a direct hit, it did end up being a 3, when it made land fall.
We were fine, it was the beach front that was damaged. This is probably when I was root bound. You know that word never; We had been in Pensacola, years before in 1986, I said, I would never be pregnant in Florida, too hot. Ten years later, my husband has orders to go back to Pensacola, FL and I end up pregnant.. Never say never...
I use to think it was a privilege to stay in one place have roots and not be a transplant. I would look at people and think they don't realize how fortunate they are. They would think my life was interesting...well, it isn't dull. I think you can be fortunate no matter if you are root bound or not, the trick is to remember we need to shock our roots, once in awhile, try something new. Everyone needs to loosen their soul, every so often. Sarah Ban Breathnach compares it this way, "Leaf, Stem, Root=Mind, Body, Soul".
I love these quotes: "Bloom where you are planted" and remember "Every path has a puddle" these quotes both originated from Proverbs~ I'm loosen my roots, for some regrowth, not a new pot.
