That's how the saying goes isn't it? I've been driving over this little plant for a few days now thinking "Ooooh that's gonna make hubby mad- seeing that plant in the middle of his expensive driveway.....!" But I believe in messages- whether they are the ones unexpectedly set before us or the ones we imbue into an everyday occurance. Why would I notice one little weed that cropped up in the middle of a crack in our drive? Maybe because its at the crest of a hill and the sun behind it highlights it very dramatically. Maybe because I'm dramatic. Maybe because when I see it I wonder how such a tiny seed could find its way into that crack and survive long enough to take hold and thrive? It sure puts a slant on the term opportunistic. Maybe I notice that little weed because its beautiful in its existance. It bloomed because it could. I think we should all bloom because we can. What permission are we waiting for? (By the way Kim- I have a weird toe!)
You know I love kids art, right? Thank you, by the way, for all your replies to my personal children's art challenge- the response was overwhelming and I will get that slide show up and running soon. Anyhoo, Brooke gave this to me tonight. "This is me and this is you and this is Dad and this is Kayla. Sorry I made you look fat."
Finally- thought I'd share with you this exciting new art project I'm working on. I'm hung up on bare feet. Makes sense, right? Summer, beaches, bare feet....trouble is all I see when I look at this are those Dr. Scholl's feet cushions you put in your shoes! Its cracking me up. Great art, Chris! You just re-invented the odor-eater!!!!! I'll let you know what develops- fungus and all!
