Today, I simply have a pictures blog post, of the numerous flowers I have come across this year and taken pictures of. What is it about them that surprises and delights us? That enthralls and captivates? That makes us cast aside our troubles, no matter how temporarily? That makes our hearts sigh with contentment and joy? Here are some “eye candy” (no calories added!) for your viewing pleasure!

Driving north on Interstate 5, likely California’s straightest and most uneventful freeway, my husband and I came upon a most unexpected and beautiful sight. It was a picture of gentle cloud breezes caressed by warm orange rays – a picture of peace and renewal. I took a deep breath, and another, and another.
This poem is dedicated to my wonderful friend, Leslie Shen, who taught me how to take time out to “smell the roses.”
Simply Time for Me
Simply time for me,
Simply time to be.
Time to take a walk and deeply breathe,
Time to calm the mind and hear the rustling leaves,
Time to slow the heart,
Say “bye bye” harried day.
