I have a memory of running through a field of wildflowers as a child. Dream or did the event actually happen? I want to believe that it did. Maybe that is why I love wildflowers to this day. These zinnias were taken a couple of weeks ago while in Florida. My thoughts at first were to lay down and absorb the smell and beauty of this flower. Sort of like Dorothy did in the Wizard of Oz after her run through the field. But, would I lay there in thought of searching for something as I sometimes do in my life or would I just be in the present soaking up the warm sun? Those thoughts have followed me through life and sometimes I just let be. Maybe enjoying each day as it comes is the life that I search for. Maybe not. One thing, I treasured that day when these flowers popped into my view just for me.
