Seeing all of these beautiful gifts of Spring can also be a distraction when she's unhappy or it can be a reason to go somewhere or do something. Of course, the flowers can also be too much of a distraction for me! I'm trying hard to pull over to the side of the road when I see a spectacular display instead of gawking out the window as I'm driving. For me, this time of year could be similar to drivers who text on their cell phones. It's not easy, but I think I do a pretty good job of keeping the driving and flower search separate. A little more wear and tear on the brakes and parking the car will keep everyone safer. But I sure do enjoy all the colors whizzing by my windows!
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. Ralph Waldo Emerson
