We're Turning The Corner Here



A place to pause to reflect on the moment


These flowers nearly pour onto the sidewalk as they hook your attention and ask you to pause here a moment to reflect on springtime and the changing of things that goes along with it, on the planet whooshing through space such that the days grow longer, warmer, and full of the promise of summer's blasting heat just around the corner. I would think the bees and humming birds would just spend Spring Break right here. Bzzzzz epic dude bzzzzzzz. And all but the anosmiacs may stand here with eyes closed and know what season it is. There were so many lemonade stands along my route today that I didn't need water bottles, just quarters. If only I had known. The week ahead is your overflowing flower box. Get up. Go ride.

  2. If you have to pick a corner to turn, that'd be a great choice.

  4. Now there's the Byrds' song running thru my head:

    To everything - turn, turn, turn
    There is a season - turn, turn, turn

  6. Clowncar, I just recently read about anosmia, and once I came across these flowers, had to use the word. My family and I bid farewell to Orion the other night. There will be a chill in the air next time we see the likes of him.
