Follow the Son

Sunflower:  a Symbol of Adoration, Faith, and Loyalty as it follows the path of the sun all day.

An old favorite tee shirt turned into a pillow with seeds for meditation.

“Make something new out of an old T-Shirt. It doesn’t have to be wearable when its done, but if it is, document it while someone has it on!” -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

 I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. For me that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.”
~ Calendar Girls 2003 Movie

“If I were a flower… I would be a sunflower. To always follow the sun, Turn my back to darkness, Stand proud, tall and straight even with my head full of seeds.”  -Pam Stewart
