But nature can shoot us down on this in a nano second.
As much as we force her, mess with her, try to change
her -- there are things she knows better than we do --
like time, and the "to everything there is a season" rule.
Facebook pulled up a painting I posted exactly 3 years ago
today. And yesterday these beautiful oranges were in the
grocery store! We didn't used to be able to buy them in Canada
with the leaves still on -- and the sight thrills me. It
reminds me of Italy, where these gorgeous fruits were
common in the Florence market, and of my first visit to
California, seeing lemon trees thick with lemons.
Thank you nature, and this painter is grateful to you in
every season -- even winter. By the way this is supposed
to be the most depressing day of the year! Really? I
hope it isn't for you. But if so I recommend getting
a great book, going for a walk even in the cold we're
enjoying in Canada, and listening to happy music.
Have an enjoying-nature day.
