synchronicity


The world is full of wonders large and small; remember last October when our plucky heroine found an entire huge flower arrangement...

Sometimes, just being in the right place at the right time is enough... This flower was in the top of the trash basket behind the floral counter at New Seasons when I was on my way home after grocery shopping. I picked it up and looked a query at the busy clerk, she nodded and made a shooing gesture... The lily had a broken stem, it would never become part of a bouquet. It will, however, last for weeks, and sweetly scent the back half of Acorn Cottage...

I just love having cut flowers in the house, it gives me a feeling of abundance, because, well, they are "just for pretty"... and having them to look at everyday is a recursive reminder to pay attention, to actually notice the world around you every day, the world that contains beauty and delight and humor, not just electrons and horror and sorrow...

(Okay, enough soapbox, back to the sewing machine for this girl)
