Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
Where flowers bloom so does hope.
Lady Bird Johnson
“Let us not go hurrying about and collecting honey, bee-like buzzing here and there for a knowledge of what is not to be arrived at, but let us open our leaves like a flower, and be passive and receptive, budding patiently under the eye of Apollo, and taking hints from every noble insect that favors us with a visit.”
(a beginning bud on a peach tree / Julie Cook / 2015)
