Irony from Mother Nature

This morning I drove across the city to attend a monthly book club meeting.  As I moved along the freeways, I noticed how white and chalky everything looked.  As I maneuvered along the side streets, I observed by how brown and dirty everything looked.  As I walked from my car to the building, I was struck by how cold I felt.  It’s only early January, and already winter feels heavy.  Ugh.

I made my way to the gathering room, set my book and purse down, and settled in.  Once I was situated, I looked to the front of the room – and saw a small bunch of fresh flowers.

They were a modest bunch of “ordinary” flowers; and yet, they felt so inviting, and warm, and calm.  I reflexively drew in a deep breath; and when I exhaled, I felt lighter.  Brighter.  Happier.

    Oh, my. This one really floated my boat. Both your swift narrative, and the photo. The flowers, the candle, the Buddha — how little is sufficient.
    Thanks, Stef
