Listening to Daffodils

It’s not everyday that one of my photos make’s it on this little blog of mine. This one went though a little tweaking thanks to google’s photo magic. I think it came out better than I expected.

Perseverance through Adversity
Perseverance through Adversity

It’s a striking image to me. Growing tall and strong, past the fences that block progress, pass the neglect that stunts growth, to form this single beautiful bloom that graces the earth on a grey dull sky, hinting of promises of sun, life and success. That it doesn’t matter what cage we find ourselves in, we can always find a way to grow beyond them and burst free.

I look forward to the all of bright colors of early spring and of the sunny daffodil blooms. Such giddy wild patches of color come blooming up. Carpets of deep velvet purple, shockingly bright splashes of fresh spring green and brilliant yellows make my soul sigh in contentment.


It’s the simple wonder of the early spring bloom that will carry me onward though summer. And my thanks to the hands that planted the bulb; you have given me many smiles over the years.

A Little something about Timing

I sit here typing this as the sun starts to fade on the last day of spring in total anticipation of a day cloaked in epic significance.
And in some ways it’s all about the timing. The morning sun will rise on the longest day of the year in the middle of a solar cycle that is spectacular in a show of divine light and utter fury.  A momentous occasion of epic proportions and I see that imprint in my own life.

I am facing the sun, looking forward to what the dawn brings.
For what Dreams, Midsummer brings?
