Purple Flowers are The Future

Some people become famous through being extraordinary.

Some people become extraordinary through being famous.

We ordinary folk are like the grass in the lawn

sort of invisible because of the flowers

and yet essential to the overall feel of the garden.

We are maintained through mass techniques (eg lawnmowers & sprinklers)

where as the flowers get separately watered and fertilized.

Their lives are governed by different rules.


This spring, our lawn is sprinkled with tiny purple flowers,

a phenomenon I have never seen before.

It gives me hope.

The extraordinary thing about being ordinary

is that, in blooming, we will carpet the whole earth

with vibrancy and colour.
