Thistle- a common weed- uncommonly beautiful


“Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it.”


(Extra)ordinary- the world in a rain drop

Autumn in the midwest often means rainy days. Making the raindrop quite ordinary to our world. But look closely- not so ordinary and perhaps even extraorindary.

My muse- flowers, always always flowers


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Muse.”

Flowers are definitely my muse. But as much as I love their exquisite beauty, I am finding more and more that I am drawn to those small imperfections. The falling petals, the brown spots, the chew marks where some insect has had a feast. The windblown or rain beaten blooms shimmer for me. But still they are exquisitely beautiful.
And so it is with us humans, when we are windblown, rain beaten or chewed on by life, the exquisite beauty is there to shine forth. If only we will stop and see.
