There are many, many questions in life, an infinite number, really – too many to comprehend. So on any given day, we can question our every move, and everything that comes across our path, or we can go with the flow. Water knows of course the most fitting choice is to go with the flow. And suspending a raindrop on an outstretched weed leaf is the perfect way this weed can illustrate the suspenseful excitement we get from the delicate balancing act that is living.
To drop, or not to drop? That’s not the question, it’s when.
A dear friend today passed on a pearl of wisdom to me, “Go with the flow.” We all can use a reminder like that to keep us on track. Thank you V!
And thank you weed, for illustrating this simple truth so generously.
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.

Your written post goes so beautifully with the image – very nicely done. It reminds of chapter 8 of the Tao Te Ching:
The highest good is like water.
Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao.
In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business, be competent.
In action, watch the timing.
No fight: No blame.
I really love the concept for your site here. Keep ’em coming.
Thank you so much, Ali. I am not very familiar with the philosophy of Tae Te Ching, but I certainly can identify with the meaning behind these lovely words. Perhaps I’ll havce to do some extra curricular reading!
