Grateful for my 2 kids, 2 granddaughters, 2 brothers and their wives and step-families, granddog, friends, and Brother David
The random idea that came to me while looking thru a dissecting microscope in the apartment where I lived, which has become my scientific life work now, in retirement
I just saw that my giant white bird of paradise plant, or wild banana, has a new leaf starting to grow! I’ve had it for 8 yrs, and it only has 2 leaves and 2 stems where I’ve cut off leaves that died.
Pastel blue sky. Gray and white clouds. Seen through a pair of screens that are making lovely slowly changing Moire patterns. And my balcony plants, which I love. … I just saw that my giant white bird of paradise plant, or wild banana, has a new leaf starting to grow! I’ve had it for 8 yrs, and it only has 2 leaves and 2 stems where I’ve cut off leaves that died. I’ll post a photo in the lounge, like Ose did!
Brother David comes to mind. And no one else is coming to my mind to displace Br. David.
I continue to be surprised by the love my infant son gave me. After having a 2nd child, and then a grandchild, I figured I must have been confused abut my infant son’s love – that infants weren’t capable of such love. But then my 2nd grandchild was born, and she loved everyone!
Not possible! Those I love most are unconvinced by many of my thoughts about diversity.
Prayer Tuesday is almost over, and I’m finally coming here. May you all be well –
Wow – there is a whole square foot of my carpet, by the guinea pigs, that has not a single piece of alfalfa hay! But there is still a faint dirt smudge and a speck of white – it seems to be a speck from a styrofoam bit like those used for beanbag chairs. Thanks for the fun question!
Today’s question prompted me to post this. Warm wishes to all –
I can fill the water containers on my balcony before it gets so hot that I need to close the blinds over the balcony doors – my plants will have more water and give me more beauty
I’m reminded of Adyashanti, who says, “Don’t argue with reality.” I’m learning to trust life instead of worrying about the future. I’m learning to tell myself, “You can’t foretell the future.”
Prayer Tuesday, dear amacord – a good day to honor our parents and families.
Thank you, Anna – indeed it is
I’ll second your vote, Linda
Oh, dear Pollyanna – what can I do except send warm wishes to you and Puccini!
Thanks, Papilio – we want to be ourselves, not copies of someone else.
Thanks for appreciating!
Yes, well, a little too warm, in this weather, facing southeast; but I’ll be able to open the blinds over the doors in the daytime one of these days. Thanks –
Weeds in the cracks are often beautiful. I’m grateful to have a great love of plants.
Ah, yes – the eternal challenge. It’s Nature’s way – the entropy [disorder] naturally increases. Good luck, and don’t be too hard on yourself if you fall short of your goal!
