As I write this, I am reminded of that old saying ... Everything changes & nothing remains the same. This is the big birthday month for our family, I love to celebrate on the day of the event, cause in my mind ... that's your birthday or better yet your date of birth. Photographed standing under this very large wisteria vine are my children, four years ago. The flood of the century humbled the vine, we call the beast and the presence of my children in my life has humbled me. Lillian's birthday is tomorrow the 8th day of July & Elijah's birthday is Friday July 16th. What seems to be the loss of this grand wisteria vine has caused me to weep and then pause at the sheer beauty of change. Our Tennessee weather has somewhat of a reputation, you have to have a real flexible attitude to live here, because here change is the constant, so much till we, around these parts, are know to say " If you don't like this weather today, just wait a day or to and it will change" .... when you know this, breath this, feel this ... change is constant ... yes things, people, times are going to change ... have faith in this and when your faith begins to falter, look to the garden the garden of life & inhale change ... like a breath of fresh air ... change ... Do you weep @ the thought of change like a willow or reach for the light of change like a sunflower?
