Flowering

Late one night, I breathed deep the fragrance of a single yellow rose. And as I held it close and twirled it in my fingers, I found myself fascinated by the play of lamplight and shadow on its folds. The images were strangely sensuous, reminding me of Georgia O'Keeffe's flower paintings.

The saying, "Take time to smell the roses," has become a cliche, which is a shame -- because the scent, and sight, are wondrous.

Treat yourself today, and think about what you can encourage to be flowering in you.
