this is the debris from yesterday’s flower arrangement. it was supposed to be swept up and tossed in the yard, but something about it was just a little bit too happy. so i threw it like confetti, in celebration of anything and everything. it has been a year of whatever the opposite is of celebration. for five minutes i decided to remember that there is beauty everywhere and be happy about it, before resuming what i hope is a respectful session of attentiveness and openness to the new world our young people are making out of the debris we left them.
