Yes, it’s wordless Wednesday but it never fails, there are usually words in my posts on Wednesday. So it is a quote from C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory, which seemed fitting to accompany this poor ‘Sarah Bernhardt’ Peony hanging heavy in all the recent rains.
“We are always falling in love or quarreling, looking for jobs or fearing to lose them, getting ill and recovering, following public affairs. If we let ourselves, we shall always be waiting for some distraction or other to end before we can really get down to our work. The only people who achieve much are those who want knowledge so badly that they seek it while the conditions are still unfavorable. Favorable conditions never come.”
So no sense waiting; get out and enjoy what this day has brought you. Wind, clouds, more rain, a hint of sun. Be like the Peony shrouded in Lavender. Even if you hang heavy, let what’s favorable and what surrounds you help you shine and still be stunningly beautiful.
