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.

I love to see wildflowers growing on the side of the road. :)  I've been known to buy wildflower seed and scatter them there intentionally. ;)  I believe a field of violets is the prettiest I've ever seen. Very beautiful entry!  I hope I can learn to love one day at a time too.

If it was real, it must have been a side of heaven I've always wanted to touch. If it was a dream, how did you ever wake up?

All the fields should be filled with beautiful wildflowers to remind us to walk on the
paths of nature, and enjoy the moment in our minds or in reality. May they both be
entwined to lighten our spirits.Thank you Carol for sharing not only my name but
such a beautiful experience!

this is too funny!  maybe it was you that I saw in my dream.  Today I thought about it a lot, I started thinking of all kinds of things.  I never read this entry.  Put a smile on my face though after I read it.
