Just a Rose

posted on: 11.17.2014

Today this post will lack whit, length and optimism. Apologies all, I have the Monday blues. In an effort to alter my melancholy state I am choosing to highlight roses, more specially, roses in less than serene settings i.e. sidewalks, or industrial buckets. To clarify, I am not trying to construct some dramatic metaphor that draws a connection between myself and a rose, and the chaotic world in which we both live. Rather, I am solely attempting to remind myself how grateful I am to live in a world where there are roses (even if they are found in buckets.)

Now somebody tell me a joke, I could use a giggle.

    Because he saw the salad dressing:)

    I have terrible taste in jokes! Sorry you got the blues- oh my I had them yesterday, Monday just hit me and it was hard, here's to hoping it perks up for the both of us!

  10. Yesterday was a pretty sucky day for me too! What is it about Mondays?? On a bright note, you get to live in beautiful, warm Santa Barbara where roses are still in bloom! That's a silver lining. Today in NY was positively frrreezing and windy! The leaves have all fallen and the trees are bare! I hope today was a better day! (And I hope you plucked those roses and took them home stat!)

  12. I'm sorry to hear your Monday was a bummer. :( I love your perspective though- at least you live in a world where there are roses. Was today better? Hoping so! :)
