Today it is snowing outside, so I thought about the uniqueness of each snowflake and how it relates to people. A snowflake can resemble everything from a prism, needles, to a familiar lacy pattern. All snowflakes follow a slightly different path to the ground and are affected by atmospheric conditions, which form their individuality. Snowflake's singularity makes a nice metaphor for our development.
Experience shapes us, each of us has taken different paths from the sky, or our being to the ground where we are today. That is where the metaphor ends; we as individuals can determine our future by the paths we take.
