Go and find yourself a flower today.
Sniff the beautiful aroma. See all the magical colours that makes up the beauty. See the imperfections that are truly perfect.
 
You would never see a flower and think it was terrible, or not pretty enough or not colourful enough. You see the beauty in it, even if it wasn’t one of your faves…. right??

This bar had a TV I’m not a fan of TV’s in bars, it was stage right so we sat stage left.  I say sat;  I tried perching on my hip, but this made me look like male model with hemorrhoids; at least here I could see the…
