Simple things that stir ideas, awe, and gratitude.

Cheri surprised me last Friday by taking me to Fort Mason in San Francisco to see the Pacific Orchid Exhibition.
The orchids come in a variety of species and colors- the cattleya, sophorinitis,phlaenopsis,dendrobiums,cymbidiums,masdevallia,miltoniopsis,paphiopedilium, vanda relatives and the hybrids.
I was swimming in a sea of colors and beauty- a relaxing, exciting experience reliving my memories of my mother watering her orchids around the house and the hikes I had when I was in my teens and finding the orchids that hung from the tree branches.
