Pay Attention

"History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again."

very touching and evocative image...

Nature is always trying to tell us things...

but in this photo image, one could imagine Nature hanging its head disheartened at humans' eagerness to forget even recent history.

Wild flowers doesn't need memory nor imagination. They just are what they are or something like this.
Wonderful photo.

I couldn't agree with Dr. Angelou's sentiments more.

We humans are starting to take our cues more from plants who are always reaching up in love and do-gooding ways. I really think we are!

I'm right there with the flowers...why fight gravity?

Exactly!

Carla said...

Pamela, Despite the delicateness of flowers, they are rather strong.

VE, Hard to fight for long, isn't it?
