Where Does Beauty Take You?

When we come upon beautiful things . . . they act like small tears in the surface of the world that pull us through to some vaster space.

Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.

Pampass grass on the bluff

One of our sisters considers pampas grass to be a nuisance, and rather large weeds. I’ve always found it pretty to look at. It’s that way sometimes, weeds . . . flowers. Kinda depends on your perspective on how you see them. Probably if I had to deal with uprooting them in garden where they were unwanted, I would see them as weeds too.

Are there any weeds in my life that I would be helped by seeing them as flowers?
