"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

The World Has No Need of Another Peacock.

I've had just enough time...   to accept me for what I am.

Taken on top of Maxwell Hill

 "Dear robin," said this sad young flower,
"Perhaps you'd not mind trying
To find a nice white frill for me,
Some day when you are flying?"

"You silly thing!" the robin said;
"I think you must be crazy!
I'd rather be my honest self
Than any made-up daisy.

 "You're nicer in your own bright gown,
The little children love you;
Be the best buttercup you can,
And think no flower above you.

 "Though swallows leave me out of sight,
We'd better keep our places;
Perhaps the world would all go wrong
With one too many daisies.

 "Look bravely up into the sky,
And be content with knowing
That God wished for a buttercup
Just here, where you are growing."

"Discontent" - Sarah Orne Jewett

I learn to appreciate
What I am.
A tiny flower
With a tenacity to grow
On hard surfaces.
