If you have read my website from cover to cover you will know the sentimental value of sunflowers to this impassioned heart of mine. In November 2014 I had to take an alternate path to get Avalon to school thanks to traffic congestion via our regular route. I was a little annoyed as the detour was more time consuming and dealing with an enraged teenager who loves to be late is real fun. If not for that re-routing however, I would have been none the wiser technically but sometimes we are digressed so that our souls may be filled graciously just a little bit more with what our generous Mother of nature wishes to share. What was laid on buffet as a feast for my eyes on the shoulder of the road was confusing as it was spectacular. An array of Sunflowers dancing vigorously alongside Cosmos as they were brushed by the draft of passing cars . Cosmos in November? Cosmos visits us only in March just as Autumn's crisp starts to peck us gently on our cheeks. Such an unorthodox albeit delightful find. Making a mental note to return I proceeded with my maternal obligations of the school run all the while revisiting the back seat of my mind about my exciting discovery.
This is the roadside paradise of what Lady Flora produces while we sleep. I was privileged to wallow in all her pretty. Sometimes it's necessary to be forced into diversion by a greater hand that plays skillfully behind the scenes. No coincidences only pleasant, unexpected surprises. Embrace it.
How I see it...
I see, speak and write in metaphors because I feel there is much we can learn from nature, people and our surroundings as depicted in my photographs and why I enjoy sharing my thoughts. Not in any attempt to convince or convert you to my way of thinking, seeing or feeling but to share how I see and experience MY mind map of the world. You at no time have to agree, all I ask is that my views and the views of others who wish to express theirs are kindly respected. So relax, get comfy and just enjoy. Happy reading!
