Epiphanies #1-3 watching bees

IMG_1270So here’s a quick recap of my bee story. So far it has  one hive given to me in 2012 with bees,  at least three epiphanies, submissions to and nice rejections from two editors, two bee suits, 36 jars of honey, a hot tub full of happy young people, 5 books, and a subscription to a bee journal.

Here’s epiphany #1: Bees are like Jews because when they go about their business, everyone gets more prosperous.

Epiphany #2: Cultivation is a form of exploitation,while still being a form of relationship and nurturing,

Epiphany #3:Success is a matter of being like the bee, promoting your interests and others at the same time.

UPDATE: Make that 2 bee suits and a bee jacket, two strainer sets, two solar melters (one got caught in the sprinkler) and 6 books.
