"Compare the serene and simple splendor of a rose in bloom with the tensions and restlessness of your life. The rose has a gift that you lack; it is perfectly content to be itself. It has not been programmed from birth, as you have been, to be dissatisfied with itself, so it has not the slightest urge to be anything other than it is. That is why it possesses the artless grace and absence of inner conflict that among humans is only found in little children and mystics."
.....Anthony DeMello, THE WAY TO LOVE
Photograph of a single rose taken on our backyard cement patio.
I was trying to obtain an unusual scratched background so I placed a single rose on a garbage can turned upside down.
