Echo the patterns found in nature

Pine trees at Llogara Pass, Albania

The most perfect actions echo the patterns found in nature…Study the teachings of the pine tree, the bamboo, and the plum blossom. The pine is ever green, firmly rooted and venerable. The bamboo is strong, resilient and unbreakable. The plum blossom is hardy, fragrant and elegant.

~ Morihei Ueshiba, The Art of Peace


About Vicki L Flaherty

I am most alive when I am creating, whether through my writing, gardening, photography, or my work. Running and yoga enrich my being. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I find a special joy in helping people succeed. I’ve done something valuable when I’ve helped a colleague or friend see their brilliance and express their full potential. I have awesome opportunities to do this as an industrial/organizational psychologist through leadership, mentoring, coaching, career and other talent programs. As I've focused on living more mindfully, I've found special joy in expressing myself through poetry and photography, and in truly being in relationship with those I meet along my journey.

  1. Gosh, to be all those things at one time… is that what success looks like?? Or perhaps it is the foundation for behavior that results in success… thanks for sharing!
