"So prayer is our sometimes real selves trying to communicate with the Real, with Truth, with the Light. It is us reaching out to be heard, hoping to be found by a light and warmth in the world, instead of darkness and cold. Even mushrooms respond to light - I suppose they blink their mushroomy eyes, like the rest of us."

 "She said she usually cried at least once each day... not because she was sad,

 but because the world was so beautiful and life was so short."   -Unknown

  2. striking photo, love the quote too!

  3. I have been overcome like that many times....in the garden

  4. You find the most wonderful quotes! The gazania is so striking and precise in it's color that it almost took my breath. Thank you for sharing it all!

  5. The gazania is quite beautiful as is the quote. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  6. This is indeed a great quote! So many emotions that we equate with sadness are simply not.

  7. I can totally relate to this saying. That flower is so striking, and I think more so because it is a single blossom. Thanks for such a beautiful, succinct post!

  8. Beautiful quote. I was crying earlier today because life is so short.
