Iris blowing in the wind
Reminiscent of white linens
Pinned on clotheslines
Smell the freshness
Enjoy the results
It's in the air

Though air may be damp and the winds may blow, life goes on in Flower Mound, Texas. It has been a week of executing contracts and home inspections. People are on the move!
Personal letters stuffed inside stamped envelopes went out from the Post Office before sunset yesterday. They will be delivered to family and friends from distant places, overseas and the Midwest. As I walked out the swinging glass door my eyes drifted to the white Iris planted below the trees, wind blowing. Thus, the inspiration for today's writing.
Vividly, I recall the neighbor's yards filled with Iris' in front door gardens. I must have been six or seven years old and I can still hear the next door neighbor say, you can look, but you cannot touch! So I touch others with photographs and words in hopes I can send inspiration to spread like seeds in the wind.
Everything is coming up Iris and roses! Buyers hope! Sellers excited! Licensed Agents fare all types of weather while in the back of their minds are personal commitments, fond memories of family and friends, hope that sales close to bring families closer together. Hope, it is the cloth we are made of from the threads of our linens, similar fabric of souls of our ancestry, and the dreams of tomorrow.
