The camellias continue to bloom, despite the fact that we are in another cold snap. There have been multiple hard freezes since they set their buds, & while some buds have just fallen to the ground, many continue to bloom. This can be a lovely metaphor for the life of an artist. Very few of us receive accolades, gallery shows, museum offers, consistently from the beginning. There are frosts & what you do during that time determines if you will fall to the ground & become mulch for something else, or hang on & display all of your beauty later. I guess these camellias could be a metaphor for lots of things in life. So if you are in a freeze remember the camellias & decide what you want to be at the end: mulch or beauty. Happy Friday Y'all!
