The buttercup affair. Are you a good influence?

I’m on an early morning run.
I approach some buttercups in the long grass of Hampstead Heath, swaying yellow in the breeze.
But on the mown grass, next to the long grass, I see hints of yellow too.
And I’m wondering.
I wonder if some buttercup petals have been blown there, whisked by the wind onto the short grass.
But no, I discover these buttercups are growing, with their own roots.
The long-grass buttercups have re-seeded, their influence spreading.

Influence does spread, good influence and bad, whether at home or at work.
It can’t help itself.
Imagine your influence today is like the spreading of buttercups.
