so many ways

All things are symbolic by their very nature
and all talk of something beyond themselves.

each of them

beautiful

in their own

Sangria15

unique

way

Sangria16

if you ask me.

and i can’t help

but wonder

    Sigh.  This is so beautiful, and, of course, it brings to mind Georgia’s famous line about how it takes time to really see a flower just as to be a friend takes time.  All of this careful looking requires patience and fortitude, sometimes.  Thank you for reminding me of the tremendous gifts of doing so.  xox
