Seeing the World Inside An Allium

Allium in VanDusen Botanical Garden, Vancouver, Canada  © Andrea Sirois

It amazes me when I see living things like this Allium about to burst forth into the world, going about its business, being gorgeous! It reminds me that lying just beneath the surface, indiscernible to the average viewer, cool things are taking shape. And to look at the world with better eyes. And I love when I walk around and ride the Skytrain in Vancouver because surrounding me are people who I know have done amazing things.

    Reminds me of the Anais Nin quote — ‘And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.’ Writings of Anais Nin (1971) by Evelyn J. Hinz, p. 40

    Andrea, I love all your images and your blog posts.

    Best, Gwen
