Once upon a time,
many years ago,

a handful of tiny seeds were sown. They were scattered amongst the wildflowers in rich soil. Roots began to spread, and they grew deep and strong. 

 

In time, the roots became tentative green shoots who peeked out from the dark soil into the world above ground. Soon enough, the green shoots pushed up further in curiosity. Up and up they went, straining to reach the bright sunlight. 

 

The roots became green shoots and the green shoots grew into a tall, strong stem. The roots remained robust, and kept the stem grounded, whatever the weather, even when it felt wobbly, or got thrown around, or trodden on. 

The roots became green shoots, and the green shoots grew into a strong stem, and the stem created lush leaves. The leaves, in their own time, gently and slowly unfurled to greet the warm sunshine.

 

The roots became green shoots, and the green shoots grew into a strong stem, and the stem created lush leaves, and then came the little buds! They burst forth in abundance of colour, quantity and shape; burgeoning on blooming! Little pockets of colour just waiting for their time. 

The roots became green shoots, and the green shoots grew into a strong stem, and the stem created lush leaves, and then came the little buds who made way for the clouds of blossom - as is the way. The blossom, like confetti, swirled and danced to the ground and made a beautiful colourful carpet before it quietly disappeared, almost as quickly as it had arrived. 

The roots became green shoots, and the green shoots grew into a strong stem, and the stem created lush leaves, and then came the little buds who made way for the dancing blossom. The rain came. So did the sunshine. Birds pecked. Animals visited. As is the way. 

 

But eventually, because the conditions were just right, and because it was just its time, the roots became green shoots, and the green shoots grew into a strong stem, and the stem created lush leaves, and then came the little buds who made way for the blossom that danced away, and - the seed flourished into full bloom! Bouncing, abundant, beautiful blooms!

Just as it was always meant to. 

Our tiny seeds were sown in 1999. In 2019, Bloom Creative Wellbeing CIC bloomed, just as it was always meant to. 

In 2020, there was a big storm - the biggest storm there had ever been. A huge grey cloud put the blooms in its dark shade. Everything was different and uncertain. The strong winds hit the blooms so vigorously that they lost some of their petals and leaves. The rain came down so hard that it squashed them almost flat. But the rain gave them strength to continue to grow, and the darkness gave them space and time to hibernate, retreat and reflect. Their deep and strong roots grounded them in the rich soil in amongst the other wildflowers. They were quiet and still. They rested. They waited for the storm to pass.

 

Slowly and gently, as the storm clouds cleared and the winds calmed, the blooms unfurled, stretched into the bright sunlight, and they danced again. Bouncing, abundant, beautiful blooms! A new season had begun. As is the way. Just as it was always meant to. 

Bloom Creative Wellbeing CIC looks forward to creatively and safely connecting with you through our 2021 Season.
