Pansies in the Garden: A Fragile Beauty

A flower's appeal is in its contradictions -
so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance,
so small in size yet big in beauty,
so short in life yet long on effect.
~Terri Guillemets

Feeling a bit under the weather today as recurring intestinal problems... well, recurred...

So much of my time seemed to be spent focused on the unpredictability of my body and not enough focus on the outside world, I am afraid.

However, regardless of how I feel my gorgeous purple velvet pansies continue to flourish. I am reminded of the beauty that can be found in fragility... the magic of an altered state, and the strength to be found in the delicate curl of a petal...
