It takes time.

georgia, okeefe
When I was in my twenties I discovered this quote.  I wrote it on a piece of paper, and kept it in my wallet for reference for many years. The words are still beautiful and true today.

“Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven’t time, and to see takes time – like to have a friend takes time.”
― Georgia O’Keeffe

  1. Yes, and even if that time were to run through, to completely expire it makes the investment no less worthy. In fact, it probably gives it a poignant value in hindsight.

  2. It reminds me of “The Little Prince” by St. Exhubery (not sure of the spelling) who spoke of the ephermeral nature of flowers. You cannot turn away too quickly – the moment you loose sight of the flower, it is gone.
