Skippers Ahoy! flitting
We've had a lot of visits to the wildflowers and the sedum today from various butterflies
and bees and other insects and earlier today from a hummingbird, zooming about the wildflowers, totally ignoring the tame flowers. To humans the containers of wildflowers don't look like much, but to wildlife, it's, well, catnip.
And watching the butterflies flitting and sipping, sipping and flitting, felt exactly like writing a blog.
Whatever's on the mind at the moment gets in there for better or worse...
Today I'm wondering which I'll have carved on my tombstone: Seize the Day! or She Knew What She Was Doing. Both remind me vividly of Victorian novel titles, but never mind about that. That's the advice I want to give after death (no control issues there, noooooo). But my mantra in life, sometimes uttered in a scream, sometimes in a gentler tone is: I'm Doing My Best! sometimes followed by Dammit.
What's your mantra that gets you through, now or hereafter? Do share.
And no, I'm not looking into the chasm. This is just a fun game.
