Productive resignation

This is NOT letting the spark die out ... it's sitting back and relaxing into watching and listening to the spark, and stilling all the wind currents that we keep bringing with us as we keep trying to figure out how to make the spark jump into flame ... and blowing at it all the time without knowing what kind of fuel to bring to it won't make it flame but will keep it sputtering and jumping ... acknowledging that it won't go out, sitting back and watching it lets us know what kinds of fuel it might like to use next.
