Blooming

My neighbor planted sunflowers way late – so late all I did was nod at her belief those seeds would bloom. Now the sunflowers are humbling me.

Halloween and these beauties are not even marked by frost. I’ve been humbled by worse things than a sunflower though…..

The journey is difficult, immense. We will travel as far as we can, but we cannot in one lifetime see all that we would like to see or to learn all that we hunger to know.
