I don't know if you can see it. That little yellow dot on the right side of the porch roof. It's a sunflower. A tenacious seed that grew where it landed...on the roof of an abandoned, and now demolished house. I drove by this place for the longest time, and never noticed. And then one day I saw it, had to turn the car around and marvel with my family. What an odd place for a beautiful flower. What an amazing statement...especially in light of the election. For me, the outcome is disappointing. And it would be too easy to sink into the mire of it. But even in a a place with a questionable foundation, destined for destruction, left to neglect...there's always hope. Rembember what Obama says - that hope should be audacious. And before you leave, take another look at that sunflower and just smile!

It's time to get back to the "It's what I do" theme that originally made my blog famous amound my two readers. Usually I try and write to the middle of the road...but not today. In fact, you've read all there is for today...sometimes a picture is worth a thousand rounds...er...words.
