a (1) : of or growing from the root of a plant <radicaltubers> (2) : growing from the base of a stem, from a rootlike stem, or from a stem that does not rise above the ground <radical leaves>
This is the radical we can all have. This time to put down the roots for radical growth. Roots that did not rise above the ground, the tiny births and deaths that make up you, in this moment. THe intersection of your past, your historical DNA, your infinite possibilities, and NOW.
This is the time for radical change.
Not face piercings, neon pedicures, quitting jobs, or eloping with a stranger.

Watering, fertilizing, seeding. Creating strong, intentional, and focused plantings.
Plantings that will yield radical growth from the roots... the kind not birthed from impulsivity.
The kind not birthed from the destructive hatred of the present.
Rather, the kind birthed from the gorgeous belief in the infinite, infinite possibilities of the future.
