After three weeks without students on campus, classes began yesterday, and the parking lots, halls, rooms were overflowing with people and the kind of sound that vibrates with energy. And while I love all that activity, there's something to be said about the calm and slower-pace of far less crowded times on the campus.
I sketched these marigolds thinking of the seeds waiting to be planted by our students. In four short months, our greenhouses will be filled with color and scent ... and the thought cheers me ... though moving from a vision to fruition -- seed to flower -- reminds me that there's a 'tad' bit of work involved! LOL
Here's to dreaming of flowers!
