Summer Afternoon

Cornflowers, just like these.

Dry breezes flow over my face and lift my hat above my hair, almost escaping from my grasp as I walk in the prairie near my home. 

I am astounded. 

The sea of blue surrounds me on every side. There are so many of these little blue flowers that manage to bloom in this dry heat, which is warming my way today. 

When I, at last,  find the shade, I am reminded of my mother saying:
“Find a tree, read a book, lie still, in the shade, the heat won't seem so hot."

In truth she is right.  It is all in the perspective of the contrasts we are presented with and what we choose to do with them.
