Artitude: The Flower.

It’s the month of March already! The year flies by and one of my “new year goals” comes to mind: to delve into the art of photography. It never appealed to me but the interest was somehow lit and I’m going with it! You see, I love nature but was (still am) of the opinion that one could never fully capture its beauty even with the popular Canon camera. However, (wo)man will make do and so begins my Artitude series. I don’t promise that it will be bi-weekly or what-not. Let’s leave that to inspiration. Here goes…

The irony of this image struck me. I was on my way to fetch bathing water and there it was, by a wall : the fragile, white flower blooming in the midst of the overwhelming deadness surrounding it. Of course, they all had the same common root, hence the same potential. Yet only one tapped into the resources fully. Goes to show that you have no excuse! You’re empowered. Grow, flourish and shine! 😉

Also, even though “everyone else” seemed to be doing otherwise, our white-flower fellow went against the seeming norms and did that which its master intended for it to do. Come to think of it, what would you do as its master do? Pluck the white beauty and put it in a lovely, water-filled porcelain jar for display? Discard the others into a trash can or even fire?

This is not to say that this was the issue here. I could come all scientific and say there was something right with the positioning of its sunlight relative to others or its spread of nutrients. However, this is what the picture in itself spoke to me. What’s your take?
