Faces to the Sun

He who stands with his face to the East in the morning will have the sun before him. If he does not change his posture, the Earth in the meantime having changed its, he will have the sun no longer before him, but behind.
Daniel De Leon, American newspaper editor and politician (1852-1914)

A few months ago, when the family's three winos ventured out on Twenty Valley's "Get Fresh" winery tour, the Watering Can Flower Market gave each passport holder a lovely potted floral arrangement. It's a gift that keeps on giving. Every day I look upon the violets' perky faces and smile at their cheerfulness. And I have come to notice that they re-orient themselves throughtout the day to ensure that they always face the light. More wisdom from the garden.
