"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Only One

Only OneMany people feel isolated and unable to connect with others because of previous negative experiences, depression, shyness or simply because of not finding someone that shares the same interests. In an ocean of personalities we have all some similarities, but no matter how much we resemble, we are unique.
Taking the photograph of this beautiful foxglove reminded me of this uniqueness. Among hundreds of purple foxgloves, this was the only white one. People that are a bit out of the so called “norm” are often not understood or appreciated. Though in my opinion they are the most beautiful and amazing.

  1. Foxglove is a perfect example of human individualism. I could never have thought of this analogy. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
    My garden if full of foxglove and I never know what to expect; however, I am always pleasantly; surprised. Just as I am always pleasantly surprised by the people I meet in person or on the net. I just wish they were all in person.
    Take care. Wally

  2. Our lives are mere flashes of light in an infinitely empty universe. The most important lesson I have learned is that what we see as “normal” living is truly a travesty of our potential. Great picture and great post!
