Deptford pink wildflowers are easy to overlook because of their tiny flower size. (About the size of a dime or smaller.) Had I been looking for something special or bold, I probably would have missed this flower. I always see and experience more when I take in the wholeness of everything around me, rather than searching for that “perfect” or “special” thing.
Days like this make me wonder: How much of life do we miss and how many things do we overlook because we are so focused on those one or two thoughts?
