Century Planet.


That is the name of one of my favorite songs. Schawn knows this. He has heard it played I do believe a number of times when he has been here.

It is about really being able to "do something" anytime in your life. From leaving an abusive relationship, to going on that dreamed of trek, to telling someone you love them even if it has been from a far for 30 years.

The song starts, “Outside my house is a cactus plant they call the century tree. Only once in a hundred years it flowers gracefully and you never know when it will bloom.”

Well, last week the Century Tree bloomed.

...Are you speaking literally or metaphoricallly or both? What a tease!

Well I guess I mean both.
A Century Planet literally bloomed last week. I heard about it on the news.

I haven't taken my voyage yet but it has started now that I have found someone who I am worthy of and who is worthy of me.
