The Pea Blossom

The Pea Blossom - Amy Lowry Poole A pleasant retelling of a Hans Christian Anderson tale. What is interesting to me about this story is how it contrasts with contemporary goal driven ideals. Visualizing what they wanted was the downfall of four of the peas whereas remaining open and trusting about the future's potential (with no clear goal) was what led the last pea to a fate more rewarding than it might have imagined. The therapeutic relationship between the sick girl and the budding plant is also appealing.
