Today new atrocities have occurred. Senseless and cruel. My heart goes out not only to those directly involved, but to those who sit and watch and try to understand. To those who are scared and scarred by the continual onslaught of violence and the seemingly ceaseless inhumanities of this world. The reason why these horrendous events happen are, I am sure, diverse and complex. I can’t make sense of it, but I can remind you that beauty hasn’t been thwarted. That good people are still strong. That our world remains a wonderful place, in spite and despite.
My envoy today is Rudbeckia ‘Irish Eyes’. Beautiful in the low autumn sun.
