Of Flowers and Fear

 Iris are the flower du jour
around here!
 It's as though someone (Someone?) 
gave the order and voila!
 I'm not sure why or how their beauty exists in my thoughts
right along with a few thoughts about fear...
Suffice it to say, that my thinking on the subject of fear these days
can be summed up in this statement
that is subject to change, by the way...
Fear does NOT equal caution NOR  uncertainty.
I'm not trying to justify my emotions
or response to the current challenges--
simply to understand and clarify them.
Right now, I DO feel both caution and uncertainty.
Not necessarily fear.
Does that make sense?


  1. Yes, I think I understand what you mean. I think it is good to be cautious and, of course, everything is uncertain right now with the virus. But that doesn't mean we are afraid - we are just being smart (and safe)! Also, the iris are lovely! Thanks for sharing them.

    1. It's nice to be understood, Ellen! By the way, do you blog somewhere? I'd enjoy knowing more about you.🙌

  2. It makes sense to me. In this disturbing crisis we need to be cautious. If we can be cautious and not fearful, that is ideal though sometimes fear creeps in for me, because the virus is dangerous.
