For Friday Afternoon

A number of my music colleagues are dealing with more canceled work (as am I), and I know many are suffering both the sadness of not getting to do what they love so much and the loss of significant income. For them, and for all who are going through rough times, I offer up this flower.

It looks like this flower is clinging to its friend the poppy, but the poppy has since left this world. Or at least its petals have. But poppies will return. As will our work.

Pink Nigella Damascena, 5.9.18
