Flowers

“I am in awe of flowers. Not because of their colors, but because even though they have dirt in their roots, they still grow. They still bloom.” D. Antoinette Foy*

Everywhere in the world, our hearts are lifted by blossoms. Here are a few lifting mine, in Balestrate, Sicily, during Covid-19.

*I have absolutely no idea who D. Antoinette Foy is, or was. Found a Facebook page that is not active. Otherwise only pages and pages and pages of quotes attributed to this name. And maybe that, too, is symbolic. Just a person, like the rest of us, articulating what the rest of us are feeling. Gratitude to her, whomever she may be!
