Some say I'm naive, looking at people through a filter of tolerance. Where is your dark side? Oh.... I have one, not to fear. It is perhaps darker than you'd like to think.



But not when it comes to the people I see. At those times I'd rather live in a garden, where every flower and weed has its place in my world. And if that's the definition of naive, I can assure you that I know how to wield my thorns should you come snipping off my buds.

In this garden ... everyone is free.

An appropriate post for me today, Allison. I see things in black and white, but choose to act as though I wear rose colored glasses -- only I know the truth. :)

Thanks for making me THINK. ;)

i love your prose. like nancy, you make me think... and sometimes it is painful, like poking into an old wound, and sometimes it is like glimpsing sunlight through the darkness. i am really, really grateful to have you as one of my garden blooms.

I have to agree with all have one. I do prefer the garden of flowers but if a weed shows up look out. :-)

Beautiful photo! I like the way you see the world.

Most of the time the weeds other people pluck out of their gardens, I find are quite beautiful to me.
