Flower of the Day: November 12, 2019

Little kids see details in surroundings that grown-ups may not. Today, I took a walk with Ellis when she pointed out a blooming flower low on the ground.

From her height level, she shows me what I can’t see unless I stoop. The flower today was one I wouldn’t have noticed on my own.

Since she knows I love taking pictures of flowers, trees, animals, nature, and a whole lot of other kooky stuff, she looked at me with a sarcastic smile. The smile seemed to say: “Hello, I found a picture-worthy flower. Get out your camera and tell the blog people I found it.”


Writing and daydreaming have always been two of my favorite things to do. I've been an avid journal writer since junior high school. It was a way for me to survive the complex world of being a Korean-American female straddling two cultures. Journal writing continued through graduate school, but that luxury is now replaced with multitasking to raise and homeschool two young kids. As the self-proclaimed domestic C.E.O. of our home, personal reflection occurs mostly in my subconscious dreams, during solo grocery shopping runs, or when my husband Chris takes the kids to Costco for an afternoon trip.
