Still Standing

“You must be a lotus, unfolding its petals when the sun rises in the sky, unaffected by the slush where it is born or even the water which sustains it!” – Sai Baba

“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust

I bought these flowers a few weeks ago and they are still standing strong. Carnations are a hearty bunch. After yesterday’s post on colors and the cusp of Spring, I woke this morning to snow falling. So much for the Spring theory. Isn’t that the way it always is? Just when we think the buds will pop, the grass awaken, the snow returns once again asking us to see with new eyes.

The snow was the perfect backdrop to the carnations standing firm, looking up and blushing with soft pink and yellow. We are both beautiful and bold, soft and tough, sullen and joyful.

Embrace the bloom and the snow. We are more than survivors. We are here to thrive. Still standing in bloom attention.
