It had been over two weeks since I’d taken my last pictures. Those pictures were for the local newspaper right before the beginnings of social distancing. This morning I noticed a lone flower that had bloomed in the back yard, so I thought it would be a subject for a picture. And here it is.
I do look for symbols in the world around and this flower is speaking to me today. There it stands, on its own, much like myself inside this house. And just like it, I am sometimes blown by the winds of change. Just like it, there are times that I close to the world outside me. And just like it, and this is most important, I continue to shine forth despite what transpires around me.
And the flower and I are doing just fine!
