Discovery


Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small. We haven't time - and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time.

Georgia O'Keeffe


Did you know clover flowers? I didn't. I guess I've always been too busy, headed here and there and walking right by. Some of the time I was headed someplace fun and happy; looking back, most of the time I wasn't. But wherever I was going seemed very important at the time.

This morning, nothing was more important than running indoors for my camera to take a picture of my discovery, and to tell you about it. Yes, there is laundry to fold and a rug that needs vacuuming, but this morning, I really saw a patch of clover.

It's a good day.

Just heard about this on NPR - you might find it interesting. Here's the NPR page where you can listen, and a link to the book.
