Each of us grows in our own way, in our own direction. We might stretch toward the spotlight for acclaim and accomplishment. Or we might find soulful success in solitude and silence. Some would argue that rooting, cultivation and branching rank as the most important aspects of learning who we are. Those qualities can help determine the spread of our influence, so we can provide at least a little bit of shade — coolness, comfort, kindness — for those who need it most.
