My friend, you and I make the most perfect and the oddest of couples. When I am serious, you joke. When I am lofty, you bring me back to the ground. When I am precise, you are philosophical. When the details blind me, you help me see the bigger picture. Fond you are for math, and for me, the words are what make me swoon.
When the winds blow too hard and I feel as though I might break, you are there to brace me up and make me stronger. And if I stand tall to soak up all the sun, you laugh because the shade is where you feel happiest.
We couldn’t be more different, in size and shape, in color and all the characteristics that matter not a whit. Because deep down, it’s as if we are from the same seed. Deep down there are the same kernels of truth within us and we’ve simply chosen to display them in different styles. It’s as simple and natural as that.
Somehow with all the differences between us, you “get” me. When I am with you, I am home. And I am so, so glad and lucky.
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.
