    reminds me, in a park there is this lovey part where wildflowers are allowed to grow and they are very tall, and there is a gap through them–a grassy path, and one stem of this tall purple flower was leaning over, so you –I felt–like it wa kind of like a fairy ‘door’—that when you gently …VERy gently just moved it to go through you were going into a different dimension, ai I would LOVE this imagination as I did just that, and laugh.

    Then the other day some sorry fuck has just broke the stem

    Sound track for this, Conor Oberst rules the universe.

    Milk thistle, milk thistle
    Let me down slow
    Just help me go slow
    I’ve been hurrying on
    I was poised for greatness
    I was down and out
    I keep death at my heels
    Like a basset hound
    If i go to heaven
    I’ll be bored as hell
    Like a crying baby
    At the bottom of a well

    This reminded me to listen to The Clientele’s “The Violet Hour”

    Flowers are the constant reminder that life is a miracle — and that miracles will pop up, like flowers, in unexpected ways and places.

    Very pretty! A time to reflect, nature is beautiful, it’s just a pity that some of we humans tend to spoil it.
