… a rose is still a rose … inviting … beautiful and calming. I took this shot whilst on an early morning walk in Half Moon Bay, Ca last August and there was a light rain that allowed for the formation of many drops that adhered to the petals of this bloom. I like it that so many people love beautiful things and plant all these flowers out in front of their homes so that those like me who do not grow them can enjoy such beauty … and so can you. It is also indicative of the premise that most people are really good people; why else would they put such beautiful flowers out for others to enjoy? It’s like they are inviting others to see how much beauty they find in life.
A long, but enjoyable day and since I was in Phoenix I made the mandatory Trader Joes run. Geez I like that store … stocked up on almond and cashew butter; they sell it for about half what the Whole Food and other stores sell it for and they even have a salted version. Then too, their cheesecakes are just wonderful … I was hungry when I was in there so I ended up with a lot of stuff and not all as healthy as the almond butter.
Late … time to shut it down for the day … keep breathing and keep smiling
The green of all the fields is mine, the stars, the night, the wind at play,
A peaceful heart, while quietly
I go my way
