Another week, another image.
This time a dead rose?
Sometimes I cringe.
“What the hell can I write about that?“
She drew a blank.
OK… so I know now… just leave it alone… eventually I’ll be inspired…
…but only if I really leave it alone! It doesn’t work if I ‘pretend’! She laughed at herself,
remembering the times she’d done this. Well I’m human.
They say meditate on a flower…
“I wonder what happens when I meditate on a dead flower?….”
“…Oh my goodness… it’s not dead! Such Beauty! Such Joy!”
She basked in appreciate of another challenging opportunity.
