Series 1 - Part 9: THE FEAST OF THE FLOWER: Plantain Seed Heads

Hi. It is Sunday.

And I have this phrase swirling around my head today: "Hug it out".

All morning, every few minutes or so: "Hug it out", and moments later again: "Hug it out".

What do you think? Is the universe speaking to me? Is it, in all its cosmic glory, trying to tell me something?

To reach out and touch someone maybe? To make amends? To look beyond my own little bubble and bounce into someone else's for a while?

I don't know.

Do YOU need a hug?

You probably do.

Alright... Well, honestly I'm not really into the whole public display of affection thing. But I'm being moved by forces greater than myself here.

So here you go. O <-- That's a hug. A free-no-strings-attached-i'm-a-friend-so-it's-okay hug.

Have yourself a lovely day!

P.S. The flowers are made of large leaved-plantain seed heads. This "weed" runs rampant in the yards and fields near my home.
