Amaryllis

What is there to say? Except it’s quite a blooming marvelous sight…

3 weeks… from January 20th through Feb 8th our kitchen window saw the blooming of this creature. Thanks mum for the gift.

The first bloom is just starting to fade, shrivel, wither and die… of course, that’s another part of the story…

Amaryllis

A bloom that had never existed in the world before… ?

 

 

A baby was born today.
We’re told three hundred thousand babies are born each day around the world
That works out to be more than 200 babies born worldwide per minute.

A New Year…

After the advent of innocence, purity and potential…
With boldness, grace & simplicity… ‘the dance’ of life continues…
Wordless truths,
lost amongst plentiful joy, trumpets and ‘tingles,
might bloom through dark emptiness,
healing wounds and lightening worries.

The thing that can be told is not the eternal thing…

Just notice.

Amaryllis

Out of timidity, pride, determination and beauty, a timid nymph Amaryllis fell deeply in love with Alteo, a shepherd with unbelievable strength. Her affection was not returned. The oracle of Delphi suggested the thing Alteo desired the most was a bloom that had never existed in the world before. That bloom is said to have come from the blood of the dying Amaryllis’ heart.

Happy New Year.
