Skookum

Merriam Webster defines Skookum as

✔Marked by strength or power

✔Marked by excellent quality

Now coming to a simple question…

Which is stronger? A leaf or a bud/flower?

The answer is easy-peasy. Is it not so?

The bud is a delicate structure yet to develop whereas the flower is a lightweight structure.

There is no comparison between flowers and leaves in the matter of strength.

The leaf is definitely stronger than bud/flower. Am I right?

But in the image below you can notice how the buds pierce the leaf and bloom into a full-fledged flower.(shallow depth of field is due to result of using 100mm f/2.8 macro lens)

I am also surprised at the shape of the holes in the leaf. More or less they are round shaped!

How is it that they are circular?

I don’t know.

Delay

Delay

“I love sleep because it is both pleasant and safe to use. Pleasant because one is in the best possible company and safe because sleep is the consummate protection against the unseemliness that is the invariable consequence of being awake. What you don’t know won’t hurt you” Fran Lebowitz

I have a question for you.

What do you do if the flight is delayed?

Do you get annoyed, angry, curse your bad luck or do you take it easy?

Some say just enjoy the fun by watching the people, the various moods and of course a little bit of shopping if it happens to be a busy airport or an international airport.

Some enjoy just sleeping in one corner.

I noticed some people grooming in the restroom in front of the shining mirrors hours together!

I always enjoy watching people.

But many enjoy their sleep.

Why does delay happen?

That is the way of life!

My friend, everything happens for a reason and the result is beneficial to us. Take advantage of this.

STALK

Heliconia-Flower

“Paradise can take the form of anything! It can be a flower or it can be a word or it can just be a sincere smile!” Mehmet Murat ildan

The above flower is (Heliconia flowering plants) known by the names ‘False bird of paradise‘ and ‘Lobster claw’ flower.

Stalk vs Petioles

Do the two words convey the same meaning or different meanings?

I don’t know.

My thinking is both are the same and it’s part of a plant that supports a flower or leaf.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

My thoughts

The important point here to note is ‘the support element’ for the sustenance of life.

My friend, we all need some support in our life to lead our life peacefully.

“Everyone needs a support system, be it family, friends, coworkers, therapists, or religious leaders.

We cannot do life alone and expect to keep mentally, emotionally, and spiritually healthy.

Everyone needs some sort of support system on which to rely”

Richelle E. Goodrich

So let us not be arrogant and egoistic.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Song

“Without music Life would be a mistake”.   Friederich Nietzsche

If I could be any musician in the world, who would I be and why?

I would love to be Kenny Rogers, a three-time Grammy Award winner and the man who knows how to convey emotions, through his songs.

I love Kenny Rogers for his husky voice, a gifted voice indeed and he was a talented artist.

The song ‘Lady’ sung by him is, One of the most Romantic songs, I have ever heard and an ideal song on any occasion especially wedding anniversaries, where one goes into nostalgia.

The ‘Lady’ he is talking about in this song is his life partner. And every word in this song tells what that ‘Lady’ means to him. Wish every couple be this lucky throughout their relationship.

Listen

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Moss

What is Moss?

My friend, you come across this moss everywhere and naturally, you ignore it.

But you are aware of the carpet feeling when you walk over it.

Moss is an ancient plant.

This is a creator’s wonder 

Believe it or not, we always overlook it.

They are tiny plants playing an important role in biodiverse habitats.

  • They are non-flowering plants without roots but have stems and leaves.
  • They stabilize soil surface and retain water helping new plants to grow.
  • Remember moss is not harmful to your lawn or garden

“Moss grows where nothing else can grow. It grows on bricks. It grows on tree bark and roofing slate.

It grows in the Arctic Circle and in the balmiest tropics;

it also grows on the fur of sloths, on the backs of snails, on decaying human bones.

It is a resurrection engine.

A single clump of mosses can lie dormant and dry for forty years at a stretch, and then vault back again into life with a mere soaking of water” Elizabeth Gilbert

Mosses

“One gram of moss from the forest floor, a piece about the size of a muffin, would harbour 150,000 protozoa, 132,000 tardigrades, 3,000 springtails, 800 rotifers, 500 nematodes, 400 mites, and 200 fly larvae. These numbers tell us something about the astounding quantity of life in a handful of moss” Robin Wall Kimmerer

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

The new broom sweeps clean-Proverb

All the time I wonder, does the broom really keep the area clean and we are free from the dust and dirt?

My friend, the broom is the dirtiest thing ever to be housed.

Think of the various items you sweep daily… leftover food, pet fur, dirt what not!

We are supposed to change the broom every month but we never care about this important step.

But I feel sad about the broom.

Why?

“It was a broom always kept aside calling dirty

It always wanted to shout aloud, “your rooms were dirty, not me” Selma Raj

broom

Broom Philosophy

“One man with a broom cannot clean the whole world but if the whole world starts knowing that that man has an idea of cleaning the whole world, then this idea can come true!

One man is one man, but one idea is one thousand men or one million or one billion men!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.
