Back in the day when the frame rate of a film was controlled by a crank, undercranking resulted in a fast forward effect. Patient Spiritual Director sent me a link to this undercranked film of flowers blooming, with the notation "You'll want to replay it." Decidedly. These flowers aren't coaxed into blooming, but blown into being. It brought to mind the Canticle of Judith (Wednesday I, MP, if you follow the Hours): You sent forth your spirit, and they were created; no one can resist your word. Resistance is futile.
