An Imaginative Exploration of the Psyche

Remember to Look at the Roses

Contemplative thoughts.
The art, inspired by the feeling, provided a focus for contemplation from which the words arose.

Time passes. Moods change, and invariably, something shifts. Perhaps a feeling, a sense of direction, or a new resolve comes from our self-reflections. Perhaps it was smelling the roses and admiring their form that moved us from our slump. Maybe we talked to someone about our concerns or cleared our heart and mind with meditation. Or perhaps it’s just that things seem brighter after a good night’s sleep.

Whatever the reason, eventually, we will emerge from our low, gather our strength, and be able to face the world again. We just have to ride out the rough patches, knowing they are a natural part of life. Nothing is wrong with us. We are simply a human being human.

But remember to look for the roses! Beauty is all around us.

"You can't let praise or criticism get to you. It's a weakness to get caught up in either one." - John Wooden
