Today I figured I would offer something that could help center us and distract us from the issues we face in the world today. My offering is this picture of a red flower I took this past weekend.
I am sure that this flower does not know or care what is happening in the world around it. It is only interested in it's immeadiate location, providing a splash of color, signaling the end of Winter.
Perhaps it has the right idea. Let's all take a deep breath and remember that despite the distractions of the world, life goes on around us, and it is up to us to take notice. I think we all need just a little peace in our lives today.
