“I don't think there's anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. For me that's because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that's such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life."

This one takes at least a little explaining. I had occasion to have a brain scan this week.
When the doctor came in to show me this, I cracked up.
I've never seen my brain before, and maybe it looks like everybody else's, but my first thought was,"It's so HAPPY!"
I've been told I see life through Pollyanna lenses. While I take exception to that characterization, it is true that on a scale from 1 - 10, with 1 being "obnoxiously morose" and 10 being "perpetually in danger of being Mayor of Fiddle-Dee-Dee-ville," I'm generally about an 8.5.
It doesn't mean that I'm not heartbreakingly aware of the most difficult things in life -- I most certainly am. What it does mean is that while the difficult things force us to walk through them, they do not require we take up residence inside them.
Regular programming resuming soon!

Beans will be here soon!
I loved the way the sunshine hit the garden early this morning. The sunfllowers (on the left) have overtaken the tomatoes.
