Wishcasting Wednesday...



The wishcasting question this Wednesday is "how do you want to bloom?"

My answer, my wish, is to bloom usefully. Flowers are pretty but I prefer the dual nature of herbs. They might not be as colorful but they have many uses. I want to be a flower that can be used for something helpful. I'd like to be a sunflower which, though dramatic and attractive, is also valued for its seeds and oil. I love the yellow of a sunflower and the fact that its named for the sun, which I need on a daily basis, just like the flower that turns it's face to the warmth and light. I like that sunflowers are related to the daisy which is almost a weed. It's uncomplicated and ....open. That's how I'd like to be, not a flower that needs to be cultivated and overprotected or raised in a hothouse like an orchid. But, if left alone can bloom anywhere and in the harshest environments. Not ordinary, but extraordinary!
