What matters? What really matters?

It is usually the little things, isn’t it? It’s a cup of coffee, the peek of spring flowers, a phone call from a friend saying she is in town, and rain in the desert…for me anyway.

February reminded me we don’t always need a plan. There are times we need to go with it. Those of us who are creatures of habit, gasp at the thought of disrupting the order of the day. But…coffee stays hot in a Yeti, the wildflowers are temporary, and there is nothing like the laughter of raincoats and friends.

Go with it.

And if you open your eyes, you might find surprises along the way, like open windows with stories of the past. Or maybe the past without any story at all.

Sometimes you must give up the life you planned in order to have the life that is waiting for you. – Joseph Campbell.

Butif I did want to organize my thoughts…I might tell you February was full of brilliant color.

It started at Poppies, a make your own bouquet, shop. Note the recipe, and my arrangement included.

A trip to Sedona’s red rocks is definitely in order with visitors.

Flowers continue to taunt us with the promise of spring.

And Rotraut’s exhibit at the Desert Botanical Garden taps into our creativity.

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together. – Van Gogh
