towards the sun / to the moon


"I don't think there's anything on this planet that more trumpets life than the sunflower. For me that's because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that's such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life." - Chris's (Helen Mirren) comment in the movie, Calendar Girls / Sorry for not sending a new photo tonight but I thought this one would be appropriate. Remember this great jack-o-lantern Zach and I carved - Fly Me To The Moon. We did such an awesome job.

I showed my kids your jack o'lantern. There were lots of "wow"s and "awesome"s. Looks like you get the thumbs up from my house!

I love sunflowers - for that reason, and because they are just so cheery.

Relyn said...

Another cohesive, beautiful pairing.

It seems incongruous that you still have sunflowers at this time of year! I like the way they're looking out the window towards the light (following the sun) - except one of them is looking sideways to the beautifully carved autumnal pumpkin... Change of season coming.

oh that quote is a wonderfully poetic description; a satellite dish for sunshine :) i wonder how you two decide the daily post? it almost seems like you have a sixth sense on how to harmonize.
