potential life

we tend to pay attention to virtual flowers when they 
treated us with their freshness and colorfulness and are 
good treat to our eyes and soul.  
 then, when the season ends, forget about what happen to 
those pretty flowers afterwards, and our basic attention move on 
to fall and christmas activity.  but here is what i found today.  

in these tiny tiny seeds
i am finding serenity and hope
and beauty
what do you see?

p.s. i love seeds....

i don't eat the leaves

sliced potatos, capper, dark opal basil,
cheese and olive oil on pizza
"what's this purple thing", he asked,
i honestly replied, "purple basil, the herb"
unexpectedly he ate it without flinching and liked it who used to
say "i don't eat the leaves" if green basil leaf were on


my father likes his shirts with a pocket on
pocket is the must have accesory for him
when buying his clothes, mom always say
"has to have a pocket on the left side of the chest"
then, we look for other possibility as always we have done
i look at my own winter wear, realized most of them
have a pockte on.  pocket.  remember why i got attracted to them.
it was the pocket.  realizing, i am becoming like him. 
as ages, i found more and more things resembling him. 
not that i wished to be this way.  but because of this,
i can more empathize him.
do you find any resembrance to your parents?

 love socks
love wool
fell in love with these three
no pocket of course on these☺
