Having Its Own Way

Yes, it is Fall here. Yes, it is Autumn in Western PA which means that the days are already more gray than clear. Yes, it's been raining for years here, well, okay I made that up but it has been raining for days. Not that I truly mind; we had a very hot, dry summer. You get my drift though- it's one of those days when you want to stay in your jammies and in bed.

Despite the fact that it is Fall, my orchid has re-bloomed. Some say they buy them and then can never get them to bloom again. I don't have that problem. Oh sure, the plants are never as pretty as when I first bring them home, but they still show me what high fashion is about when they send out their flowers.

Some things simply insist on having their own way....flaunting their attributes...commanding attention...announcing their presence...sharing their gifts.

Despite what their surroundings might try to shackle them with or suggesting that the timing is not right...

Some bright spirits can still feel their own worth and merit. Some things insist, for the positive, on having their own way.

I think I should be an orchid.


Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly

Of course you are an orchid. Certainly beautiful!

You have rain... we have drought, but we both have those beautiful orchids :)
That's a particularly wonderful capture Holly.

I have so many questions for you.
Why don't we see you out and about as much as we used to?
What's happening in your life?
Are you living in a new home?

and I could go on and on.... but at the end of the day it doesn't really matter at all and I wish you well for all that is happening in your corner of the world.

love to you
x Robyn

Hi Holly... Another example of our sisterhood. My orchid is in bloom too... and I definitely think we should always get our own way :-)

I think perhaps you are part orchid.

I wanted to thank you so much for coming by and offering support during what has been a difficult time for me. Your comment truly reminded me that "fear is toxic" and although I have been sad and afraid, I have also made a point of being grateful and focusing on the present.

Honey, you are an orchid :) When I was reading your description of this stunning and resilient flower, I thought, "Holly".
