The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Friendly Flowers

Not all things that flower in the desert have sharp pointy spines.


  1. So cute to see such a bright flower popping up between all the stones and gravel.

  2. Looks like it is blossoming directly out of stone.

  3. A beautiful little plant John... nature is amazing.

  4. An unlikely-looking survivor in such a harsh location. Amazing what nature can do.

  5. Do you know what it is? It is pretty...looks lonely there, though.
