A wider, more altruistic attitude is very relevant in today’s world.  If we look at the situation from various angles, such as the complexity and inter-connectedness of the nature of modern existence, then we will gradually notice a change in our outlook, so that when we say “others” and when we think of others, we will no longer dismiss them as something that is irrelevant to us.  We will no longer feel indiffernt. ~ Dalai Lama

The forecast for the weekend is 80° and that means winter is over…at least to me.  It makes me sad, and anxious for what’s ahead, but it also means things are going to start growing again.  At least until the heat reeeally kicks in.  This was a tiny Lantana blossom not ravaged by our many frost-filled nights.  It seems hopeful for warmer days ahead, even if I’m not.
