Plant a flower

October 8th, 2007

Dsc 9799 Plant a flower Something a little different today.

We returned from our trip to Long Island and Vermont late Saturday night. Yesterday we went to visit a friend who has been in a series of hospitals for the past three months, ending up in a hospice. When we arrived his wife dashed out to run an errand, leaving my wife and I there in the room to stand beside his bed while he finally gave up his fight and breathed his last. He had had his 61st birthday the day before he died.

So, today feels a bit different from other days for me.

This is a photo from a few years ago of the bleeding hearts I planted beside our front door. I’ve always loved bleeding hearts. They are the first flower out in the spring, a sign of the new life and beauty that is coming. And I find them remarkably lovely.

So, I just suggest that you stop for a moment today, and every day, and enjoy the life and beauty that is all around you.
