Monday

Willing To Be Dazzled

Still, what I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled---to cast aside the weight of facts and maybe even to float a little above this difficult world.

At first I thought this was a buckeye, but then thought not. I sure wish I could name every living thing!

Glad you had a wonderful day with your mom.
