Dogged insistence on beauty

It started out with this flower. This yellow one right here, growing out of some broken concrete, saturated against the sky.

And I was like,

I appreciate this flower’s dogged insistence on introducing beauty to a broken world.

Today I didn’t want to be inside for lunch, cramped around my space heater, so I went outside, intent on finding more dogged insistent beautiful things.

Like this table, WITH SUCCULENTS IN THE MIDDLE.

Like this dainty flower.

Like this dainty flower.

Like this mossy crack, and the plant springing forth.

And that’s just that.

Also. Here's an image of Josh eating nachos with a SALAD TONG because, "there weren't any other forks in the drawer."

  1. So good!!!! I know exactly what you mean!!! This is like walking home on the sidewalks by your house over to St. Mary’s seeing the happy little beauty pop out. There may be flowers in the fields that are well and good, but the flowers in the city are a special wonder and touch the heart more deeply. Sometimes when I see little children playing at a park in the city I just smile knowing they’re daisies through concrete…

    I don’t mean to spam the comment bar, but sooo so fitting, too…
