Day 1635: Tomorrow will be better.

airstream, photo transfer, collage & watercolor

Sick of being sick!
But I do thank some of you 
who have taken time to wish me well.
Believe me, I am more than ready to comply.
Tomorrow will be better.
Artist/friend Erin Houghton sent me this ...

Bentley & a geranioum

She sent it me, to "geranium girl".
And so I will re-post that story. Thanks Erin.

I originally told this little story on Day# 258, April 2013.

Decades ago, Demura Sensei pointed to a 
geranium on his desk ... and said to me,
"you like that flower".

 I said, "But Sensei, that's a geranium",
with the same intonation as if a weed.
"Yes, you like geranium!".

"Oh Sensei, can't I be a rose, or an orchid ...
or a tulip?" I pleaded.

"No,  you like geranium!".
I was crushed. 
I wanted to be something elegant or beautiful.

Later Sensei said, "No, that good. 
They don't need a lot of attention & they bloom easy."
And so, I guess I am a geranium.
