November 21


“Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.” -- attributed to the Greek statesman Pericles.

And I will add ... alas.

Outside plant, brought in for the winter. Its tag says "beedance." I bought it because it is supposed to be good for pollinators, and I brought it inside because it still had dozens of flowers. It still has dozens of flowers.

Impeded view of sky.

I do not like surprises.  I like to know what is going to happen.  But sometimes, in the most mundane and unimportant of circumstances, I enjoy a surprise.

We've had these towels for years and years and years.  I knew there was a band of not-looped fabric.  I sort of knew there were squares.

I didn't know until I saw the sun behind this towel on November 21 that the squares have different levels of opacity.


Burning bush on the sidewalk.

Hooray for grocery-store flowers!  I have no idea what that one with the fuzzy green-gray stuff and the yellow things with orange and yellow points is.

Your beedance is beautiful. I would have brought it in too!
