I Am Not Well


Sick In My Leaf

There’s something not right. My leaf feels sick. Actually, now that I examine my situation more closely, a couple of my leaves don’t feel so hot. Perhaps I’ve caught a cold, perhaps there is a bug going ’round. Perhaps I’m just low on vitamins. Or perhaps it is the grey sky that is dragging me down. I feel alone and want to curl up. But when I think about the soft slow foggy curl that will keep me company in my low times, and how it will drag me down, I resist. I feel a spark of life from another part of me, the part that is open to seeing the sunshine and I give it some room to breathe. Have heart! Look lively, there is a bright side!

This weed was feeling quite down and looking sickly until I came along and paid attention to it. Then it seemed to perk up, and offer its dramatic side to me for capture.  Even when you are sickly, or just in a complaining, achy mood, a little extra love and attention is a guaranteed perker-upper.

Feel better soon, all those who are achy or cranky or under the weather. Please don’t be alone, please reach out for some hugs, even if over the phone. If you get all dramatic enough, a portrait just might be in your future!

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
