Today’s resolution: The task at hand

27 Sep

“We should do every task for its own sake as time and place demand and not with an eye on the result. Then each task turns out well, and anything we undertake succeeds.” — I Ching 25, Wu Wang/Innocence (The Unexpected)

My plan today? Surprise myself by not worrying about the future and results; instead I’ll focus on the task at hand.

 

Lovely surprises such as this are alternately known as Surprise Lily, Magic Lily, Naked Lady and Lycoris squamigera. (2011/RO)

    Pretty! I love these flowers. I saw a patch of them yesterday on 9th St. as I was coming in to work. A splash of color out of nowhere!

      Thanks, Donna! I love them, too. They pop up in a few places in my backyard every year. When they’re gone, I forget about them — so I’m surprised and delighted when they reappear.
