Watching Cornfields Grow

There’s an English idiom that says “like watching grass grow,” which means something that is slow and boring. But that exactly what I did here.

Part of my morning running route is passing by a vast cornfield. And I chronicled its slow evolution during the whole growing season with these photos below – from a few days after being planted, to right before harvest.

Not everything in life is fast and exciting though. Sometimes life can be mundane. And there are things that needed time to develop and mature. We cannot hurry nor rush them. We just have to be patient and watch as they evolve in their own time.

I’m not just talking about growing grass or corn.
