Precious Sight

I spent most of today in pain and moderate discomfort from an issue with my eye. I tried to flush it myself but ended up going to an eye doctor. Turns out it was a sliver of wood stuck in my eye. Nice. I left the eye doctors and was going to take a walkabout but the eye, though no longer hurting, was still weeping a lot. I think I am an above average in being aware to how good most of us have it but I never realized how much impact not having vision in one of our eyes can impact ones life.

Since I was not comfortable going for a walkabout I went through some pictures I took Friday. The morning was humbly cool and I had a small window of time during a break in the rain. Here a few from that set. It is good to see them, though they are not my best, and to know how precious that is.

Buttonbush using my old barn as a backdrop…kind of. Missed by this….. much!
I look around a lot will on walkabout. Up, down and all around! I found this little flower and though I do not know what it is one thing is sure: It is tiny. See the next picture for comparison.
The comparison shot for the above picture. I told you the were tiny!
I believe this the flower of a plant called Common Mullein.
We have always called this a Night Shade flower but the correct name is Horse Nettle.

I am a 57 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I am married and have been for 26 years to the same wonderful woman( read into that: she puts up with me and I married up). I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on.

    The complexity of the way our body works…. Take care. Sight is precious. These things call us to pay attention to what is important in our lives… lives so complex we often forget the roots.

  2. Here is to knowing we have roots and may we always see the tiniest bloom. Lovely haiku and always thanks for sharing.
